News Article

We had a great turn out for Grandparent’s Day.  Thank you to everyone that was able to attend.  We are still working on practicing classroom rules and procedures.  We are flipping cards now for behaviors and giving blurt beans for talking.  Please continue to talk with your child about classroom rules and procedures for school.  Every little bit of practice helps.  


Please continue to practice the flashcards that were sent home on Monday.  Practicing the cards is a very vital part to your child’s reading success.  Please remember to return the signature page on Fridays.  We will start sending more home pretty quickly.   


Communication Arts: We are still reviewing our alphabet letters and sounds.  We are also working on nice, neat handwriting.  Please stress to your child the importance of neat handwriting.  


Math: We are still reviewing our numbers and counting/writing  to 120.  


Social Studies: We are taking a break on Social Studies.


Science:  We are continuing to learn about plants and animals.  


Spelling: We haven’t started spelling yet.  We will start after the fair.  Please continue to practice the flashcards each night.
