This week we were learning machines!
In Reader's Workshop, we reviewed what we have learned so far: looking at the picture while we read, looking at the picture and first letter, using our book bags, and practicing turning and talking.
In Writer's Workshop, we learned how adding a sentence using sight words help us read the picture.
In Math, we worked on decomposing numbers with totals of 4 and 5. We wrote numerals 1-5 in order. We worked with numbers 6-8. We learned how to write the numbers and use the numeral to represent a quantity.
In Phonics, we practiced letter sounds and learned the sight words "the" and "a", please practice these words at home. Our letters of the week were "C" and "O".
In Social Studies, we worked on families. We learned what a family is and who is in a family.

Notes from Mrs. Maillet
Thank you to Miss Meghan for volunteering in our classroom, we appreciate your help!
I will be sending home the book order Tuesday and placing the order on October 20th. Thank you for your support!
HEADPHONES: We will be starting our computer based math program during math centers this week. I have some headphones that we can all use, however, if you would like to send in some for your own child, that would be fine. They can store them in their cubbies. Thank you!
We are in need of some Clorox wipes and Playdough if any one is interested in donating to our class. Thank you in advance!!

I'm looking for some volunteers to tear out pages for our next math module. Please let me know if you can help out.
We have had some sickness in our room. Be sure that your child is getting the rest he or she needs to stay healthy. Keep on reading!
Notes from Mrs. Marcoux
We will be placing our class Scholastic book order on Friday.
We have had a lot of sickness in our room and have been using the disinfecting wipes consistently. We would love to have more if you are out and about.
Have a great week!
Notes from Mrs. Potter
We are becoming great readers!! The students were able to choose books for their book bags this week! They are so excited to find that they are starting to be able to recognize words in their books! They are also doing well with using the picture to help them tell the story. We will continue to practice using the picture AND the first letter of the word to see if it makes sense!
Wish List! We are running low on tissues and Clorox wipes! We have had many friends out sick and have been working hard to try to keep the germs away!
