Week of August 30, 2021

Dear Parents,

I have had an amazing two weeks with your children! They have become a family that cares about one another. We have spent much of our time getting to know each other and learning classroom and school-wide routines and procedures. Learning these expectations, the children know what to do and our day runs very smoothly.

Word Work

We reviewed the sight words from Kindergarten and I tested each student individually......every student read them quickly and correctly! I introduced the next set of sight words and I was pleasantly surprised how many of these words the students are using in their writing.

Reading

The students read independently and in whole group lessons. I've read books to the class and we discuss characters and setting as well as connections they have to the story.
 
Writing
 
I'm teaching the children to write in complete sentences when writing stories about their lives.
 
Math
We are using Base 10 Blocks and Unifix cubes to count and add to 20. This is a review for many, so I'm extending the learning for these students.
 

Science

We've discussed lab safety and experienced our first lab. Students explored lab tools in our school's science lab. They loved it.
