Wednesday, September 11

Patriot Day...wear Red, White, and Blue!


  • Please remember to have your child at morning assembly by 7:40am. Morning assembly is a great way to start our day together as a class family.
  • If your child is buying their lunch, make sure to practice their lunch code.
  • Make sure to check and initial their Panther folder daily for behavior notes and school/community information.
  • Check their blue Homework folder for any assignments. Remember all homework is given Monday and due Thursday with the exception of spelling tests, which will be administered on Friday.


This week we are focusing on readers as thinkers. Readers wonder, ask questions, and make predictions about what they are reading.

Please ask your child about their reading. Why? Who? What? When? and How? Listen for the "I think..." "Maybe..." and "Then..." as they predict.


This week we will be focusing on stretching out our small moments and writing with detail.

Please encourage your child to be on the lookout for the small things in their lives that could make memorable stories and catch them. Write them down on a Post-it, a piece of notebook paper, or an extra notepad to have for the next writing workshop.

Reading Skill

This week the focus is on comparing and contrasting. Students should be able to verbalize and write how things are alike and different.

We now have a scheduled library day each Wednesday morning. Each child will be expected to have at least one book on their reading level.


We will continue to review the parts of a complete sentence. Students must be able to identify a complete sentence versus an incomplete sentence. They will be asked to look at their own writing as well as others.


This week's words focus on the short vowel sounds of o, u, and e. Although students are expected to master these words, applying the phonics rule will aid in their writing and reading.
