Weekly November News

Week 2

Dear Parents,

I hope everyone had a great week! I want to thank all the parents who volunteered to be a chaperon at the Science Museum field trip this past Tuesday. The students had a wonderful time!

We covered some new information this past week.

In Language Arts, we are focusing on producing a word that rhymes with a given word. We started by recognizing words that are in the "ill" and "own" word families through the nursery rhyme, Jack and Jill. We are beginning to identify and discover which words in the "ill" and "own" word family rhyme and the reasons to why those words rhyme.

In Math, we are learning about the number "10". The students are learning to recognize what the number "10" looks like and are beginning to incorporate "10" in our counting.

For Social Studies, we are focusing on "Around The World". The students are learning to identify which country we live in on the globe. The students also had a chance to pinpoint what country their parents or grandparents were from or where a family member lives.

In Science, we are learning about sound. The students are focusing on "What Makes Sound?" by experimenting with small instruments and common objects.

I have asked the boys and girls to find two objects or names of people that rhyme from around home or the neighborhood. We will be making a rhyming booklet consisted of a drawing from each individual student on their rhyme findings.


Here are a few, quick reminders on the upcoming events for the month of November:

The Book Fair will be coming to the school on November 18th, 2013 at 6PM. Please join us in the cafeteria for some family reading time and other fun activities. The Book Fair will be at the library until November 22nd, 2013 for the students to enjoy.

Our Thanksgiving classroom party will be on Friday, November 22nd, 2013. The Thanksgiving Party will be held before the students' lunch time. Pizza, juice, and festive cookies will be provided.

Have a wonderful week!
