Back To School.png

For the week of September 17, 2018

It was wonderful to meet so many of you at Back To School Night.  If you haven't done so already, please sign up for REMIND. Text: 81010 with Message: @msminervac

 **Also, if you have not already done so, please send in the $10 that is being used for agendas, homework notebooks, and Scholastic News. Thank you!

~HOMEWORK: We will continue this week with spelling and math homework and will be adding "Book-in-a-Bag". Our agendas have come in so the homework for the week will be stapled in there. Agendas, red folders, and book-in-a-bag with reading log should come back and forth to school EVERY DAY.

Our Work for the Week:

SPELLING WORDS: and, be, help, play, with, you, pal, man, fit, box
*There will be a spelling test on Friday.

This week we will read a story called "What is a Pal?". We will use this story to focus on main idea and details, as well as other story elements like setting and characters.

FUNDATIONS: This week we will continue to review all letters and their sounds.

MATH: We will continue with Chapter 1: Addition Concepts. This week we will focus on the commutative property of addition (3+2=5 and 2+3=5), all the ways to put together numbers through 10, and continue practicing adding to 10. We will finish up Chapter 1 by the end of this week. We will review next Monday and take our first Math Test next Tuesday, September 25th. All questions on the test will be read to the children. 

**Please note that if during the day we use pages out of our Big Math Book in class, I will send those pages home in the red take home folder so you can see how the lesson was taught during the day. It is my hope that, if needed, this will help you be able to assist your child with the homework that night.

RELIGION: This week we will look at Chapter 1: Jesus is our friend. We will learn that Jesus and his friends love everyone. We will also learn about the crucifix and how we, as God's people, make the sign of the cross to show that we are friends of Jesus who try to be like Him.

SOCIAL STUDIES: We will begin talking about families this week. We will look at how all families are special even if they may look different than our own.  We will also talk about the roles and responsibilities of all the members of our families.

**As always, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
