This Week in Room 17
We read some awesome stories this week. Some of the titles include What If Everyone Said That?, Enemy Pie, and Alma and How She Got Her Name. The last book listed was used to show how our names are unique, but we also have a lot of similarities! We also have started to build our reading and writing stamina --which seems to be one of their favorite things to do so far! :)
We played some math games to practice our addition fluency within 10. We have also been learning a lot about the 7 Habits and how we show leadership every day! Ask your child the difference between a leader and a boss and how they were a leader during the Team Challenge!
Next Week, August 26-30
We will continue to practice our reading and writing stamina! We will also lay some expectations for our Reader's Workshop. We will be setting up our writing binders and also start to brainstorm a list of ideas we could write about throughout the year.
We will continue to learn new math games to strengthen our fluency with numbers between 0 and 10. Also, we will practice how to be a great math partner!

Note About Birthdays and Treats
In regards to birthday party invites, we ask that all of those be distributed outside of school. I will be sending out the class directory shortly which is a great tool to utilize as it has emails, addresses, and phone numbers of the families of those in our class.

Yesterday, I sent home a parent invite so you can join our class. Some families have had issues with the code. If this has happened to you, let me know and I can help you! If you already are signed up, this is wonderful! If you did not receive an invite and would like one, I can send you another one! Let me know if you have any questions!
At Home Activities
There are so many great things that you can do to extend your student's learning at home! Below are some links that we will be using this year. A major focus this year is building our reading fluency. A great way to help with this at home is to read to your child and also allowing them at least 20 minutes a day to silently read books that are just right for them. Another major focus this year is their addition and subtraction fluency. An effective way to help with this is to play math games! All you need are dice and playing cards and you've plenty of games you can play. I can send some ideas your way if you would like!
