Week Of November 12th
Highlights From Last Week....
Thank you to all the Veteran's who have risked your life for our freedom!! We really appreciate it!
This week our class read stories about how bugs and started our unit on rules.
We learned the new vocabulary words: rules, cooperate, guard, prank and responsible. We learned the new sight word "to" and the letter Ii.
We continued our unit on Shapes in math! The kids LOVE this unit!
We had a visitor, Miss Mary, that came to talk to us about bees! The kids were able to use their schema from our bug unit last week to help understand the topic. They LOVED seeing real bees wax and learning about the life cycle of a bee. Thank you Miss Mary, we really appreciated your visit!
A peek at our learning this week...
This week our class will be reading stories about sounds we hear in our neighborhoods and communities. Your child will experiment with ways to make sounds.
Here are some activities that you can do with your child to help reinforce the skills we will be practicing.
- Vocabulary: listen, volume Go outside together and invite your child to listen to the sounds in your neighborhood. Talk about what makes the sound. Describe the volume of the sound.
- My Words to Know
High-Frequency Word: and Write the word and, then have your child trace it. Have your child search for and circle the word and in a newspaper.
Category Words: sound words Sit outside together and listen for different sounds. Ask your child to identify what is making the sound. Have your child describe the sound.
Phonics: n Search for objects that begin or end with the letter n, such as nails and pan. Write the words on sticky notes and have your child put the notes on each object.
In Math, we will finish up our unit on shapes.
Please practice letters and sounds with your child nightly! Thank you!
Great job reading with your child!
We are now just eating one snack per day, so there is no need to pack two snacks! Thank you!
Notes from Mrs. Maillet
Notes from Miss Berube
I am continuing to practice some letter naming with some children. Any practice at home is a big help to growth in the classroom. Many students have begun reading many more words as we've been studying letter sounds.
I am so proud of all the children and how hard they work. Keep up the hard work and thank you for all you do!
No school Monday! Thank a veteran!
Have a great week!
Notes from Mrs. Goldthwaite
We celebrated Veterans day with a nice program this week. The students did an amazing job. Remember to thank a Veteran !
What a fast week! Great learning going on. We are at the point where we can use some extra practice on some skills. I will be doing some individual skills practice. Please continue to work with your son/ daughter at home.
Our math module is talking about 2D shapes and 3D shapes. We had our fourth grade buddies going over the attributes of these shapes and they were impressed what we knew about the shapes!
We will be having parent conferences December 10th and 11th. Please be watching for information to set up a time.

Notes from Mrs. Webb
Happy Veterans' Day to all of the men and women who serve our country. Take time to say "Thank you!" to a Veteran you know.
Mo's Fudge fundraisers were due Friday. They should be in before we break for Thanksgiving.
The Holiday Canned Food Drive has begun. If your family would like to donate a nonperishable item to help bring food to local families in need you may send it in with your child. All donations are greatly appreciated.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS...Friday, November 16th from 6-7 pm PTO is sponsoring "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving". Popcorn and water will be provided. Come dressed in your pajamas and be ready to snuggle and watch this fun movie! Bring a blanket too!
Please continue to review the sight words and letter names/sounds with your child. There is already so much growth being noticed! I hope you are seeing it at home as well. So many reading logs are coming in and the children are telling me they are reading to family members! YAH! Keep up the hard work!
Remember with the cold weather coming, we still go outside for a 20 minute recess after lunch. Hats, mittens and coats will help keep the children warm as they get that needed fresh air. If you are in need of any winter clothing please reach out to me. We have so many donations given to the school or resources we can pull from. I would be happy to help you.
Scholastic book orders were ordered Friday. They should be in by the end of next week!
Have a great week! Remember, NO SCHOOL Monday. Thank a Veteran!
Notes from Mrs. Marcoux
We are practicing letter names, sounds, sounds heard in a word and high frequency words everyday. I am hoping that your children are coming home and reading the booklets we send home to you. Thank you for reading and practicing with your child, it makes a big difference!
Please remember to label outdoor clothing and to dress your child for the weather. We like to get outside for recess as much as possible.
Thank you for all that you do!!! Keep up the great work!!
