I hope everyone enjoyed the 3 days weekend. Please be sure to practice "tapping out words" with your child. A letter went home this week explaining how to do this.In addition to our regular reading groups, we also continue to utilize small group reading instruction with Miss Lawless. This has been so beneficial to the children.

Just a few reminders:
**Changes in transportation MUST be in writing.
**Your child will be coming home with a folder each day. Please be sure to go through the folder and take out any notices that may be in there.
Please be sure to send in one HEALTHY snack for your child. Please also send in a drink with their lunch and a spoon, if needed. Please try to refrain from sending in peanut butter with your child.
The children have started to practice writing their name (the first letter of their name should only be capitalized). Please give them practice at home with this, as well.
Each week our class page will be updated. This will give you information about what we will be learning in class, important events, due dates, field trips, etc. The sidebar on the left will be updated with useful links to websites for you and your child, as well as our calendar. At the bottom of the web page, you will find our special schedule.

When writing, please only use pencil......unless otherwise noted.
Practice letters and their sounds.

This week, we will be working on Unit 2  for the next 4 weeks in Fundations. During the next several weeks, we will be working on letter formation for uppercase letters, letter sequence for a-z, story prediction and short vowel words (CVC words consonant, vowel, consonant---can, bet, etc). We will begin to TAP out words. This is a strategy that will help your child read and write.
Please give your child as much practice writing as possible. All letters should be touching lines. Please note sight words for the week. I suggest writing all sight words on index cards and reviewing with your child. The more they see them, the more quickly they will recognize them.
Letters of the week: Capital A-H
Sight words of the week: get, up, some
*****Please have your child practice writing their name each night. 

We will continue Chapter 6-Subtraction. Children will learn that "subtract" means take away. They will also learn a - and = sign. Continue to practice counting and writing numbers correctly.
Have your child practice counting real life objects at home. We have learned that numbers should touch the top (sky line) and bottom (grass line) and not float. Please have your child practice writing numbers 1-10 as much as possible.

We will learn about Dr. Martin Luther King and how he changed our world.

We will talk about how we can be kind and how our differences are what makes us unique..

If you have any questions, concerns or comments throughout the year, please feel free to contact me.
