Week of 10/20

Week of 10/20

It’s field trip week!  Thank you to everyone who volunteered to join us on Friday.  Please make sure your background check is completed before we leave.  It does take a few days to process so I would suggest having it done before Monday afternoon.  You just need to go to the office, complete a form, and have a copy of your license taken.

For the field trip, please make sure your child has a bag lunch with his/her name on it!  It looks like it will be chilly, so please make sure the students are bundled up since we will be outside all day!  Have your child wear the “Team Serazio” button for the trip too!  (Thank you Vinny and family for the buttons!)

This week in…

Language Arts, we will be working on Opinion writing.  The students are doing well with spacing between words and stretching.  On Monday, during Daily 5, I will be checking sight word recognition.  Please make sure you are working with your child on sight words and alphabet/ sound recognition daily.  Our focus letters this week will be Ee and Ff.

Math, we will focus on symmetry, measuring objects by length, number stories and estimation.  We will be baking cookies on Tuesday and making some symmetry goodies on top of them!  The students have been practicing numbers in the teens.  We call them the tricky teens.  We sing a you tube song called “numbers in the teens they start with a one” in case you want to play it at home!

Science. we will focus on pumpkins!!!  We will be measuring. sinking/floating them and eating some seeds too!

Social Studies, we will be focusing on our homes and who lives in them.

Have a great week!
