November

From the desk of Dr. McDaniel

November is a time for GIVING THANKS!! I am THANKFUL to be a part of the SUNSET community of learners!!! We are continuing our FOCUS on LEARNING throughout this month with many activities for you and your children to be involved!


Today, your child will receive their November Homework Menu. We hope you are encouraging your child to work on this menu daily! There are plenty of activities for them to do that reinforce what we have learned at school. It is due back on November 29th!


Every student has access to an online Reading program called Imagine Language and Literacy that your child can access from home. They can log in through Clever and they should know all of their login information. This is a great learning tool that can be done daily at home before TV or video games!


Thank you, parents, for supporting us in educating your children! As always, you are their first teacher!

Dental Health & Hula Hoop Activities

This month in PE we will begin our Hula Hoop unit. We will engage in various activities throughout the month that use Hula hoops, thus improving students hand eye coordination, spacial awareness skills, and gross motor development. Students will also be learning various vocabulary words associated with the activities ( halt, commence, construct, transport, and signal). The muscle of the month this month in PE is biceps.


In Health students will be learning about dental health. Students will learn how food effects their teeth, the different parts of their teeth, and different types of teeth.

Music

I was thinking how many people love the Fall weather yet have few songs to sing about it. I know when the chill first comes, I admit to humming a few holiday tunes for December but can't think of many that celebrate Fall or Thanksgiving. Feel free to write me and share your favorite Fall songs--help me out!

Library Adventures

Greetings of Thanksgiving from your favorite Librarian! Letters were sent home to for parents of 2nd-5th grade students about the 2nd quarter BINGO Book Challenge. The purpose of the book challenge is to give students new ideas for selecting books. All students should be reading 20 minutes 5-7 days a week and every students has the opportunity to check out new library books each week. We often see that students select the same books or same type of books each week. The idea of the BINGO Book Challenge is to break this habit. We have thousands of books in the library that our students would love. Let's encourage them to read outside of the box!


Keep our kids reading!
