Room 124 News
While we are on this cold, winter talk....it is that time of the year to start sending in hats, mittens, scarves, boots, snow pants and warm jackets. Hats and mittens are famous for pulling off the most mysterious of disappearing acts; please make sure your kiddo's name is in/on winter items, boots included! It gets real interesting when identical boot sets show up. Once snow starts piling up, kiddos will not be allowed to play in the snow unless they have boots, snow pants and other cold weather gear. If you would like your child to keep his/her snow pants at school, please shoot me an email or note letting me know! I also highly recommend dressing your kiddo in layers as well. Sometimes Room 124 can be super warm, other times Room 124 can be rather cool.
I hope homework has been manageable for you all! I have received some wonderful work and am really impressed with the quality. I will apologize for any mix up last week with Spelling City! I started to put new words in - the site crashed - and guess who forgot to go back later and finish addressing the changes?? Yup, this teacher! All new words should be entered in for this week.
Over Thanksgiving break, I will not send home spelling homework, however, I will expect kiddos to access RaZKids (or just read books!). I will send home a reading log for vacation weeks. Also, IXL and XtraMath are sites where math can be worked on over vacations. If you asked me to choose one math site over the other, I think XtraMath is better at addressing math facts - so go there. For those who do not or will not have access to internet over vacations, I will also be sending home a set of flash cards for you to keep at home for practice. Ten minutes a night will make a huge difference in your child's automatic recall.
Big and exciting events coming up this week - Grandparents Lunch!! I am very excited to meet more family members and witness the sweet relationships between our firsties and the grands! Enjoy the rest of your weekends!
It's a little delayed.....but check out the pumpkin fun!
Giving Thanks to Those Who Have Served
On Monday, we will spread the Thanksgiving love with a little turkey project.
To those in our Room 124 family who have served or are currently serving, thank you!
If your kiddo has been singing a catchy little tune (wink wink) about digraphs, you can thank YouTube!
We have been working on br-, cr-, gr-, tr-, and fr-. These words are super tricky especially in our writing, so we are working on training our ear and our brain.
Word Work Stations
Some of our favorite word work stations include: roll, find & highlight, read the room, color & write, color by word family, and roll & write.
