This week in English Language Arts, we have been focusing on lowercase letters, practicing uppercase letters and sounds, and learning beginning reader skills. While also making fun crafts to decorate our classroom and hallway for parents and families to see during conferences!
We also have been working on learning our sight words, which are: in, it, is, am, I, a, to, for, my, the, that, little, was.
***You will notice your child came home with a big plastic baggie with paper books in it. These paper books will stay home! The kids were SO excited to finally get to bring home they paper books! These are books that we have read in guided reading groups. They would be great practice for the kids to read a few times a week!
Below are some pictures from ELA this week!
In math we have continued to work on sorting objects into categories, counting from 1 to 20, writing numbers from 0-5, and identifying 2D and 3D shapes. Good practice to do at home: ask your child to count as high as they can, write the numbers 0-5, fine "math shapes" in the world.
We've started to use the computers almost everyday in math!
This week we started our plants and animals science unit, which will carry over into next week! We have been talking about what plants need to live and grow (sunlight and water) and what animals need to live and grow (food and water). Ask your child what plants and animals need to live and grow! See some pictures of their work below!

FALL / HALLOWEEN PARTY!
Tuesday of next week is our Fall/Halloween party! We do ask (as a school rule) that students do NOT wear costumes. Fall/Halloween colors and shirts are welcome, though! I would also like to invite any parents/family members to this fun gathering! Students will eat lunch in our classroom around 12:30. ****If you plan to join us, come to our classroom at 1:00. The party will end around 1:45-2.
*****This Newsletter Blog will be updated at the end of each week! I will post pictures, bulleted points, and an explanation of exciting events from throughout the school week. The only pictures posted will be of the students whose parents indicate on the Media Disclosure Form that it is okay to publish their pictures online.
