Morton's Musings

Communication for the week of November 16, 2015

CHANGE in SNACK

A huge thank you to the parents who have donated snacks the last few months.


Since the kiddos are maturing and are not seeming as hungry in the afternoon, I am making a change in my snack policy. From now on, parents may provide a daily snack for their child, and only their child, in small zip lock baggie. They may eat it in the afternoon during a time I provide. If your child does not have a snack, and is hungry, I will provide them with two saltine crackers.


I am no longer asking for donations for snack.


Please contact me with any questions regarding this change.

Reading


Phonics skills:


This week we are practicing the long u, soft g and long e sounds.


Comprehension skills: Author's Purpose: When reading ask your child questions about why they think the author wrote the text or a word. Here are some good questions to ask: Why did the author write this, to entertain you or to give you information? That word or sentence is silly, why would the author choose to write that way?

Spelling

huge, June, rule, tube, use, cube, cute, flute, rude, mule,

Words to Read

around, find, grow, under, food, water.

Math

We will be taking a Unit Test this week. After that we will continue to practice solving doubles, doubles +1 and doubles +2 math facts.

FIELD TRIP NEXT WEEK!

Reminder that we are going to the Plains Indian Museum in Cody next Monday.
