As we enter week three of school, the class is settling into a nice routine. I have really enjoyed getting to know your children, and have been impressed with their kindness towards each other. Any peer disagreements have been solved quickly and peacefully, which I appreciate. One lesson your children partake in each week is a “Second Step” lesson, which is a behavior program to help kids learn to get along in a variety of tricky situations. Based on the first two weeks, I’d say your kids are ahead of the curve when it comes to getting along with each other!
Our theme of the week in reading is “Traditions,” and we’ll spend the week reading stories about traditions, as well as sharing our own family traditions. We had our first spelling test last week, and we’ll have spelling the next four weeks leading up to our first Unit Test at the end of September. The majority of kids did and awesome job on their spelling test this week, which is no accident. Keep up the extra studying at home!
In Math we’ll explore 2s, 10s and 9s in multiplication and division. Most kids are doing a great job returning homework! This week, I anticipate my Math class will have homework on these nights.
Monday – Homework 1-6
Tuesday – None
Wednesday – Homework 1-7
Thursday – Homework 1-8 (Possibly)
Friday – Homework 1-8 (if not assigned Thursday)
You child should have brought home a green field trip note for our September 6th trip to Morrill Hall. If you can’t find the note, please click on the “Events” tab to read the information letter.
Thanks for reading and have a great week!
