Week of December 10-14, 2018
The holiday spirit is in full season. We are getting so excited, yet there is still so much to learn during these busy weeks. We are trying our best to stay focused and meet our goals. Please remind your child each morning about the SPARTY behavior goals, which earn monthly rewards.
Our Reading story for the week is “Little Quack.” This animal fantasy will focus on plot (The important things that happen in a story). We will read about a duckling that learns new things as he gets older. This gives us the opportunity to discuss verbs that are happening now and in the past. The amazing words presented in the story are: duckling, pond, paddle, plunges, proud, and brave. The targeted sight words are: me, with, and she. (As always, remember to practice sight words daily.)
Our Phonics letter of the week is Rr. The /r/ sound, as in reindeer, will be the focus in our lessons with segmenting, blending, rhyming, and reading words.
Math: Numbers to 20 will continue this week. We are counting, reading, and writing numbers 0-20. Please remember to keep practicing correct number writing. Also practice identifying numbers 0-100 in random order.
~ Tuesday, 12/11/18, will be a dress down day for those who provide a non-perishable item or a monetary donation.
~ The Krispy Kreme pick up will take place on Tuesday, 12/11/18 from 4-6pm at the elementary cafeteria.
~ Our Field Trip to ride the Santa Train in Jim Thorpe will take place on Friday, December 14th. Children are encouraged to wear pajamas like the characters in the Polar Express story. (Chaperones are also welcome to dress the role!)
~Please remember to have your child dressed to withstand the cold weather. Winter coats, hats, mittens, etc. will keep them warmer during our 30 minutes of outside recess on days when the temperatures are not extremely cold.
