For the week of September 24, 2018

*LBCRS Parent University - A flyer went home last week to inform you that a parent university workshop for "Go Math" for 1st and 2nd grades will take place on Tuesday, October 16th at 7pm. If you plan to attend, please be sure to fill out the RSVP form on the bottom of the flyer and return it to school by Tuesday, October 9th.

~HOMEWORK: We will continue this week with spelling, math and our reading: "Book-in-a-Bag". Our homework for the week is stapled in the agenda. Reminder: agendas, red folders, and book-in-a-bag with reading log should come back and forth to school EVERY DAY. (Agendas are kept in school on Fridays so that is the only item that doesn't need to be brought in on Mondays.)
Book-in-a-bag: Reminder....the children should be reading EVERY night and filling in their reading log.

Our Work for the Week:

SPELLING WORDS: for, have, he, look, or, what, mix, pin, rip, hit
*There will be a spelling test on Friday.

This week we will read a story called "The Storm". We will use this story to focus on character traits, as well as other story elements like setting and plot.

FUNDATIONS: This week we will finish up reviewing all letters and their sounds.

MATH: We have finished Chapter 1: Addition Concepts.  We will review on Monday and take our first Math Test next Tuesday, September 25th. All questions on the test will be read to the children. On Wednesday we will begin Chapter 2: Subtraction Concepts. We will begin with using pictures to help us understand "taking away".

**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.
