Weekly News


Here are some of the things we will be working on this week:


  • Reading and writing How-To pieces
  • Using multiple reading strategies when we come to a word we don’t know
  • Word Detectives – use sight words as clues
  • Word Work – focus depends on each child’s specific spelling list


  • Adding and subtracting within 20
  • Word Problems


  • Phases of the moon
  • Comparing plants at different stages of their lives

Home Reading Log

  • Each night your child will bring home a different book in their home reading log. The Reading Log inside the bag is simply a way for us to keep track of which book is being sent home. Please continue to record reading in the Reading Log that is in your child’s homework folder.

Home Connection

  • Practice counting to 120 starting at any number (ex: start counting at 59!)
  • Read for 20 minutes each night and record in the Reading Log
  • Retell the most important parts of the story in order
  • Be a word detective and look for your spelling pattern (ex: -an words) and sight words in books you are reading

Important Dates and Reminders

  • November 9 – 9am start
  • Book Fair – Nov 14 (5pm – 7pm); Nov 15-Nov 16 (8am-4:30pm – Sign up in class)
  • Fill out the Contact Form to share your contact information with other parents.
  • Pack enough healthy food for snack and recess so your child is not hungry throughout the day.
