Ms. Erickson's Classroom Snippet

Take a Peek into our Week!

September 8- 11

This week we are learning and enjoying...

Math: This week we will begin our place value unit. We will use concrete & picture models to compose and decompose numbers up to 99. We will learn to write numbers to 99 using standard, written, and expanded form. We will compare and order numbers, as well as, locate the position of a 2 digit numeral on a number line.

Reading: We will continue to make connections from our reading to our lives. We will discuss deep, thoughtful connections as well as connections that might distract us from the deeper meaning of the text.

Writing: This week we focus on the picture portion of our writing. We will read books that are wordless and discuss how the author was able to “write” such a detailed story without the use of words. Then we will try to tell our own stories using pictures that are already drawn.

Science & Social Studies:

This week we will take a look at famous historical figures who have portrayed specific citizenship traits that influenced our history, and the way we live today. We will connect how their citizenship has influenced our lives now.

Planners (White Binders)

Inside your child's backpack is a white binder. This is your child's "planner" to assist them in getting organized for the school year. It will come home every evening and it needs to be returned every morning. Inside the planner is a front pocket that reads "Papers to be Kept at home". Please take those paper out because they are now for your records. Please have your child show you their "Planner Message"

After taking out the papers and reviewing the planner message, please write your initials on the little box labeled "PI" (Parent Initials)

If your child has a star in the box labeled TI that means they have a great day of learning and they made good choices with their behavior. Please applaud a job well done.

Thank you for your help to ensure that the planners make it back to school every morning.
