Progress Reports

I will be sending progress report home tomorrow. Please take a minute and go over it. This is where your child stand right now. Remember that the end of the marking period is not until the end of October. If you see areas in where your child needs improvements, please continue to work with your child in these areas at home. I will also be working with them at school. Please do not panic and keep in mind there is plenty of time before report cards. Together we can help every student be successful. thank you for your support and do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks!

Academic Corner

Reading - We will be reading "I Was So Mad". Students will be able to identify important ideas in the story, make text to self connections, and identify concepts of print.-

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".

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!
