The days are getting cooler and are flying by our eyes!

Please remember to dress your child for the weather. We will go outside as long as it’s enjoyable. we went outside this morning to see what we could detect using our senses of sight and hearing. We also collected leaves to fit with our unit on LEAVES.

Open House…Tonight!!

We are excited to show off our classroom tonight at Open House. Please stop in for a visit from 6:00-7:30.

Several of you have asked very kindly if there was anything I could use in here. Well…if you have an extra small jelly roll pan or cookie sheet I could use a few in here. I like to use them for magnetic letters and using the cookie sheets, the kids can take the letters to different areas and work with the letters without them spilling off of a tray. Thanks!

We’ere good on snacks for a few weeks. I’ll let you know when we need refills.

For tonight, I will have a computer available for you to sign up for my blog. I usually post on Fridays for the upcoming week…what the READING COMPREHENSION STRATEGY, Math concepts, PHONICS focus, etc will be for the following week.. Kids love to come in on Mondays and tell me what we’ll be doing for the week. 🙂

A reminder that next Thursday, I will be having a PARENT MEETING to go over some expectations, procedures, and tips for how you can help your child at home. September 19 at 4:00 in my room

See you tonight!
