Winslow's Weekly Update

Looking Ahead in Room B-4


Due to the short week and our field trip, we will take a break from our formal reading curriculum and do a variety of activities that center around Apples. We will read some non-fiction books and learn about the life cycle of an apple. We will also review our short vowels by going on a word hunt in our classroom.


We have been busy learning how to count on to solve number equations. We learned about the word "greater" in order to help us count on faster. This week we will use these skills in some math games.

Computer Lab

We were able to go to the computer lab this week. We learned how to access RAZ Kids. This is a program that is geared towards your child's individual level in reading. They complete a group of reading activities to help advance their skills. (Listen, Read, take a comprehension quiz) We will try to use this program weekly at school but it is also accessible at home. Your child brought home log in information on Thursday this week that will help you get into this program. After testing each child, I have entered their current level in reading so the books are a "good fit".

Important News

***Please help your child to remember to bring their library books back to school on Tuesdays. Tuesday is our library day.

***Our field trip to the apple orchard is on Wednesday. Watch the weather report for that day and dress your child for the weather. If you are planning on following the bus to the orchard, please be at school by 9:20 or so. There are other parents doing the same...maybe you can carpool with someone else from our class.

***We will be having our Rice Lake Fall Harvest Parade on Friday, Oct. 28th at 1:30. In planning for your child's costume, please know that we would like to see non-violent/non-scary costumes for our parade. NO blood, masks or weapons. We would like to make it as easy and simple as possible. Your child should be able to put their costume right over their clothes. We will not be sending any students to the bathroom to change into their costumes. It is ok to come to school with colored hair but please no make-up. Let me know if you have any questions.

***No School on Thursday and Friday.
