Reading

We are learning the 3 ways to read and practicing our reading stamina every day! Ask your child what the 3 ways to read are and remind them they are all readers! It is also very important to read to your child every night for 10 minutes. This can become a nightly tradition and special time for you both.

Bono the Monkey Goes to School

Bono has taught our class the rules of going to school. Ask your child to retell you the story of Bono and what rules he learned. We will continue to talk about school personal standards as well:


1. Be respectful

2. Make good choices

3. Solve your problems

Math

Our first unit is geometry. We will be exploring 2D and 3D shapes. So far we have sorted shapes in collaborative groups and started exploring each shape and its properties (sides, vertices). A fun way to continue talking about shapes is to have your child find examples in your home.

Writing

We have begun writer's workshop in Room 301! We have been practicing the correct way to color. We have also started working in our own journals to write about topics we choose! Students will have lots of opportunities to write throughout the day. It is one of my favorite times of day!
