Week of 10-28-19

Dear Families,

I hope this message finds you dry and warm and spending time with your loved ones. Looking forward to a wonderful week. Here is what you need to know. If there are any changes or additions to our post I will make them as soon as they arise. Have a wonderful week and Happy Halloween!

Important Dates:

Friday: Half Day for students with an 11:45am dismissal. Though we will not have lunch on Friday students are welcome to bring a small snack 

Thursday October 31st is Halloween! You child may bring a costume to school in a bag (with their name labeled on it) to change into when we begin our class activities. The principal has asked for students to please have them wear their usual school clothes in the morning. Thursday mornings we have gym class! We will have stations beginning at 1:30pm and a school-wide parade at 2:00pm. Parents welcome at 1:30pm to join in the fun! I have set up a sign up genius below for any families wishing to donate supplies for the party. No pressure of course  Any missing items Mrs. Ross will be sure to purchase. Students can bring in an individually packaged treat to share with their friends. We have 21 students and I am working on a “Safe Treat List” of options that will be ok to bring in and share with ALL our students  These items will be egg free, nut free and made in peanut/tree nut free facilities. Thank you all so very much in advance for your generosity and help to make our Halloween Party safe and amazing!

Homework: Homework packets were collected yesterday and the next 5 lessons was be sent home  In addition, your child will receive a new homework game to add to their binder! Thank you again for all your ongoing support with the packets. Each week when your child returns them they will get a check mark. If they reach four in the month they will receive a penguin point! 

Popcorn: Due to the half day we will not have popcorn sales this week!

Language Arts: This week our theme will be Bats which will link nicely to our Halloween Week. “Stellaluna” by Janell Cannon and various narrative and informational books about bats and Halloween.

Poem: Bats

Sight Words: is, has, he Letters: Vv, Zz

Writing: (Narrative Focus) This week we will keep working on our unit “Writing Through Pictures” and continue beginning to label our writing with the beginning sounds of objects in the stories! Our topics will include Halloween costumes and candies this week! Ms. Shapas will begin modeling simple sentences to accompany her stories on the big easel. Many students are beginning to write simple sentences to support their stories. I am impressed!

Math: We are reaching the end of Module 1 and I will begin reassessing skills acquired during this module. When we move onto Module 2, remember to continue playing games sent home from the first module throughout the year  Students develop at different speeds and all these concepts are important to keep practicing 

Science: Mystery 5 the Force Olympics

Social Studies: Cont. Unit on “Getting Along With Others”
