October is behind us and November is here! I hope all of you enjoyed Halloween with all the goodies and goblins! In A-1, we had a great party with treats and a spooky movie which lasted all week. Many thanks to Mikayla and her family for the movie, “Spooky Buddies”. The classroom is still decorated with an autumn theme and we will begin next week with owls, foxes, bears, and squirrels. We will be studying about the forest, nocturnal animals, and habitats.
In math, we are in the middle of Chapter 5 which focuses on numbers from 11 to 15 with counting and quantity. I will be sending home Chapter 4 math review in this week’s upcoming homework.
For journal writing, the student’s are focusing on incorporating sight words into their sentences on a daily basis. This week’s new words are: “they”, “are”, “we”, “he”, and “she”. Please help your child learn these additional words by arm spelling and continuous practice.
Conferences and report cards are coming up shortly and I will be sending out a schedule to sign-up at your convenience.
Veteran’s Day falls on Monday, November 12th and school will not be in session on that day. We will resume on Tuesday, November 13th.
Also, we will have a whole week off for Thanksgiving which is Monday, November 19th through Friday, November 23rd. School will resume on Monday, November 26th.
Be on the look out for upcoming schedules in the weekly homework and as always you can call me at school at 336-8901 for any additional information.
Happy November, my favorite month!
