Mrs. Seeley's Weekly Stats

September 19

Exploring Light


Please continue to record books read each night on the Reading Log. Remember to keep the Reading Log in the homework pocket located in the TEAM book. I check these logs every Friday

One of the first reading strategies we will concentrate on is Schema. This strategy focuses on what we already know about a book or topic before we ever read. Schema changes and grows the more we read.

In phonics this week we will focus on word building words with short vowel sounds.


This week I will use "Little Critter" books as a model for writing a personal narrative. Students will begin writing their own personal narratives in writing workshop.

We will continue focusing on staying on topic, as well as, capital letters to start our sentences and punctuation to end them.


Our focus this week will be word problems. We will learn to draw out the word problem sentence by sentence to help us solve it. We will continue our practice with number bonds.

Social Sciences

We will continue our study of the Behavior of Light and Communication.

Message from the Office


Starting next week, students will begin earning “husky bucks” for displaying positive behavior and making great choices in school. Students will be able to use their husky bucks in our school “Husky Store”. If you have any items that you can donate to our Husky Store, please send them with your child. We are looking for items that kids would enjoy as a cool prize such as games and toys. We know our students are going to enjoy shopping in our Husky Store. Thank you for your support!!


Each student is allowed 6 parent excuses per year (this is a change from years past). Parent excuses can be a hand written note or you may email the excuse to your child’s teacher and copy the excuse to:

An ORIGINAL doctor’s excuse may be turned in from the parent by the student.

All excuses MUST be turned in within 3 days of the absence.
