Notes

  • I am sending home an October activity calendar. The calendar is optional. Please feel free to use it if you are looking to have your child do some educational activities over intercession. I would also suggest having your child read for at least 10 minutes/day. Your child can also get on the following websites that have been introduced in class: Raz-Kids, Starfall, Abcya, Math Magician, and Spelling City.
  • Mrs. Isaacson is our room parent this year. If you would like to help at parties, you can send her an email at ksisaacson01@gmail.com. Thanks Mrs. Isaacson!
  • Mrs. Tom has brought a nice math app to my attention that may help your child with math facts. Best of all, it's free! It's Math with Ninja-add and subtract-by Fantamstick. Thank you Mrs. Tom!
  • Thank you for taking the time out of your evening to attend parent/teacher conferences! I hope your family has a restful and fun break!

Reading/Writing

We read Thump Thump Helps Out and Nell's Books this week. We also read other stories where we practiced the skills of th, sh, closed syllables and -ing. Our grammar skill was common and proper nouns. After break we will work on consonant diagraphs and adding -es.


Your child can work on the Raz-Kids website at anytime for more practice on reading comprehension. If you think your child's level is too easy let me know and I can increase the difficulty. The teacher username is: smitchellav

We reviewed many skills we covered the first quarter. We also had fun at math stations. After break we will work on frames and arrows, calculators, dimes, counting combinations of coins, and a fun pumpkin project.


Let me know if you would like me to send home flashcards for chomputation. Here is a great link to practice timed facts:
