Week of October 23-26, 2023
October 27, 2023
Dear Room 108 Families,
Can you believe that October is already almost over? This school year is going by so fast! As always, thank you for your continued support this school year. It takes a team between the teacher and families to help these amazing students learn and grow!
What Did We Learn About This Week?
We had a visit from the Dearborn Fire Department on Monday, October 23! The firefighters were amazing at talking to our students about fire safety! They talked about how to stay safe if there is a fire, such as getting out of the building, stopping, dropping, and rolling if there is fire on their clothes, meeting their families in a meeting spot, and calling 911 if there is an emergency. The students got the opportunity to see the fire truck and the ambulance, too!
We practice our reading comprehension skills by reading, “The Little Old Lady Who Wasn’t Afraid of Anything,” by Linda Williams. As we read the book, we talked about which parts of the story came first, middle, and last. I encourage you to read the book with your child this weekend and see if they can recall the details of the story:
This week we learned about letters Qq, Ss, Jj, and Dd. See our alphafriends in the pictures below! This weekend, I encourage you to work on these letters with your child. Work with your child on the names of these letters. For a challenge, have your child practice writing these letters!

Weekend Activity Idea!
The students are working hard on their names. They work on their name puzzles at school every morning. This weekend, I encourage your child to work on their name puzzles that were given at the Parent Meeting. If you did not attend the meeting, please check your child’s backpacks, as their name puzzles are in there.
