Mrs. Sumner's Classroom News
September 28, 2015
Writing - We will continue "Getting to Know You". We are a little over half way done with this program. I will be starting Unit 3 Looking Closely: Observing, Labeling and Listening Like Scientist. I am asking that students start bringing in Fall nature objects (leaves, Indian corn, acorns, sticks, small gourds). We will be taking a close look at these objects.
Math - We will be finishing up Topic 3. Students will be able to count and write numbers 0 - 10. Please practice writing these numbers the correct way and watch out for backwards letters.
Science - Students will be studying the "Signs of Fall".
Letters of the Week - Bb
Sight Words for the Week - cat, to, and
Making Homemade Apple Sauce!
Tip#3: Try New Genres
A great way to increase your child’s interest in reading and help them boost their knowledge level is to expose them to a variety of literature. Try fairy tales, poetry, song books, nursery rhymes, funny stories, mysteries, and nonfiction text (space, animals, etc.) This will keep them interested in reading because the stories are not always the same, and it will also help them find new interests. As they begin to read on their own and pick out books they will have a broader range of topics and types of literature to pick from. It might even surprise you to see what they like best!
