October is here and we're off to a great start. It's hard to believe we've been at school almost a month already. In writing we have begun our Personal Narrative unit. Thank you for sending in all the great pictures and supplies for their writing folders. They are now full of great memories for the students to write about. In reading we have begun selecting book boxes and are focusing how to choose Just Right Books and building stamina. We will continue to build upon our reading strategies throughout the year to become stronger readers.
In math we will focus on multiples of 10 and review identifying and counting coins. Next week will begin Rocket Math. Look for a letter explaining the process to be sent home soon. Our first unit in science will be Plants and Insects. It a very hands-on unit so it should be lots of fun.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me. I can be reached at school during the day at 298-2600 ext. 4135 or you can e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to meeting you soon!
