Newsletter for the Week Of January 23rd

Peek at the Week

  • The Unique Learning System topic for January is Exploring what manners are, the importance of helping other and understanding their feelings.
  • Our story this week is The Little Red Hen Makes Pizza. This story helps the students to understand that helping others is part of good manners. The students took turns playing the different characters in the story and used an array of buttons to say their part in the story. We also used this story to point out differences and similarities between the two Little Red Hen Stories Click on the button below to enjoy the story at home with your child. Reading the same stories at home helps the students make a home/school connection and allows them the chance to let you know what they have been reading all week at school
  • Our core word focus this month is “I.” Below is the story we read this week. Please remember to send the button back and forth to school.  At the end of each school day, we will record a message from your child to play for you about their day at school.  In return, you will record, with your child,  a message about something they did at home. You would say something like, “Press the word ‘I’ and tell me about your day at school”
  • Our letter this week was the letter O. The students made variety of projects to represent the letter O.
  • For math this month, we are practicing fractions. Pizza makes for a delicious fraction lesson

Peek at the Week

  • Our story this week was Presents Under the Tree  by Holiday Hands on Reading.  This story starts with a favorite holiday scene…presents piled under a Christmas tree.  Children get to find which present belongs to them, and then see what’s inside.  The focus is on counting, colors, vocabulary and general holiday fun.   We also enjoyed What’s Under the Tree  which focused on positional words.
  • We made our Christmas Popcorn for our parents and wrapped our gifts. We sure hope you liked them. Giving gifts to those we love is the best!
  • We practiced addition and subtraction this week along with 1:1 correspondence, addition and subtraction
  • We had so much fun at our classroom party!

Change of plans….

To be honest, I have been doing a “Snow Day” chant since last week. There is absolutely nothing more joyful than a snow day. I pulled out all the tricks. Spoon under the pillow, PJ’s inside out, flushing ice cubes down the toilet along with my daily snow day chant. Looks like it might be working. The forecast shows favorable consideration for a snow storm. For this reason, we are going to change our classroom party to Wednesday, December 21st.
