Wow, November is winding down fast!
We had a Wonderful Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving, thank you to all the parents who sent in treats for the kids to share and for the parents who volunteered!
We have begun our Second Math Module and are working on shapes in Math.
We are beginning a non-fiction writing about turkeys in writing along with opinion writing. The children are really using their personal dictionaries and our class word wall well.
In Reading, we are working on fluency while reading, decoding unknown words and making sure we are understanding what we are reading.
In Science we will continue our unit on Weather. We will look back at the weather graphs we began in September and compare weather and make one large graph to show our weather pattern.
In Social Studies we have begun our unit on Needs and Wants, we will start looking at what basic needs are and how we get those needs met.
Parents, you are doing a fabulous job encouraging your child to read every night. Your efforts are showing greatly!
How exciting, it is parent teacher conference time! If you do not know when your conference time is, don’t worry. I will be sending each parent a personal Dojo message with their appointment time and day.
We are beginning our work on Weather in Science. We have been graphing the weather all year, so we will analyze that data and look at trends.
In Social Studies we are beginning our unit on Needs and Wants.
In Writing, we are working: adding details in our pictures so that we can add details in our writing, making sure to write using finger spaces, and beginning our sentence with a capital.
In Reading we are working on identifying letters, sounds, and sight words. Your child should be reading each night for 15 minutes and doing 15 minutes worth of math.
In Math we our building our foundation in tens and understanding in each group of 10 there is a group of 5. Building the foundation slowly now will ensure that your child has a strong foundation later on in their school years.

This week we will be going to Debuck’s Orchard and Corn Maze. We are so excited! I will post pictures later this week.
We have gotten into a great routine with Daily 5 and reading groups, Eureka math and stations as well as writing daily sharing our thoughts and opinions.
I am adding a link to share Social Stories to our PBIS page. This link is to videos that help children understand the need for fire drills, lock down drills as well as disaster drills for terrible weather that may arise.
This week I will begin working with the children to begin actively using the word wall. I have given each child a word wall list in their writing folder to help them during their daily writing.

October has come in with a Bang!
It has been a very exciting beginning of the year!
Our class has really adjusted to this new beginning, the new expectations and our new learning! I am so proud of all that we have done so far! I am so encouraged on what we will accomplish this year.
