Please remember to check out our blog each week. I will be posting information here every Sunday night for the week. http://lattaslibretto.weebly.com/
Highlights from Last Week:
Thank-you to all our parents that were able to schedule a time in for parent teacher interviews. I enjoyed visiting with you and chatting about your child. If you were not able to meet during those times and would still like to come in, please send me a note in your child’s agenda. We can find a time that works.
Last week we finished our first formal art project. All students made Sunflowers, using dry chalk and white glue. They are absolutely stunning. I’ve hung them in the hallway for families to admire- please come check them out!
What’s Happening this Week?
This week we will be talking about what makes a “complete sentence.” Students will learn about nouns and verbs and we will continue to reinforce punctuation and capital letters.
In our phonics review we will continue with our “magic e” review and begin learning about the rule- “2 vowels go walking the first one does the talking and says its own name.” (i.e. rain, stream, moan etc.)
Reading this week we will be reading from our readers and looking at comprehension and ‘reading for meaning.’ Students will often read a text but then be unsure what it was about. We will be working on this!
In Math, we are finishing up number patterns and will be working on our speed of recall of basic math facts to 18. I have some math games we will play to try to help students become faster. Subtraction is always more difficult! Any practice you are able to do at home will most definitely help your child in class. J
Social Studies this week will be thematic in that we will be focusing on Thanksgiving. We are making something special for our students to take home this long weekend!
In Science we will starting to learn about Owls. This is a longer unit and will most likely take us to Halloween.
Health and Career: We are learning to become responsible citizens in our community. We are learning about recycling and taking care of our Earth.
