Classroom News

We had another great week! Me Boxes are due on Monday. Make sure the Me Box does contain anything that needs to be returned right away. We will be sharing these throughout the week and then return them when we are all done sharing.

Health and Wellness

Logan Township School District has a Wellness and Nutrition Policy. Here are some ideas that can be sent to school for seasonal parties and birthdays.

Apples, Baby Carrots, Grapes, Bananas, Celery Sticks, Dried Fruit, Low Fat Muffins, Fruit Wedges, Rice Krispie Treats (store bought), Potato Chips, Jell-0 and Munchkins.

Math

This week we worked on counting by 10s and writing numbers in order from 1-20. We have made a lot of progress already. Please practice these skills at home. Next week we are going to be adding and subtracting to and within 5.

Writing

We continued to see ourselves as writers these week. Also, we learned how to use our writing tools. Students were given a word wall to put in their folders so they can refer to it to help them with spelling.

Reading

We started Readers Workshop this week. We learned how to pick out books that are just right for us. We also learned the way to sit hip to hip and enjoy our books with our friends. Books we read this week are Junie B. First Grader at Last, First Day Jitters, and Manners in the Classroom.
