Ms. Williams' Class

November 10-16

Hello Parents!


Remember to sign and return the permission slip (due 11.12) for our field trip to the Downtown Aquarium on the 16th. Students should meet at school at 8 a.m. and the bus will leave promptly at 8:30 after everyone has signed in. We will be returning to the school parking lot around 1 p.m. A sack lunch will be provided for all students. I can't wait!

This Week in the Classroom

This week we will be focusing on location words such as beside, near, in, under, far, between and many others. We will be reading stories and singing songs that include these words. As a class we will go out to the playground and put these words into practice. We will also be doing many group and individual activities in class to help strengthen each child's understanding of location words. These activities will be based on:

  • Math- placement of numbers (near or on top each other)
  • Science- location of clues (under the rocks, up in a tree, near the playground)
  • Reading- where characters are (over the bridge, in the woods, near the cave)
  • Music- dancing and singing about location words
By the end of this week I hope that your child will understand what each of these words mean and when and how to put them into practice.
