News and Notes Don’t forget to send in your donation for our class raffle basket! All the proceeds from the basket raffle at the Boutique come back to our class! Our Halloween party will be on October 31st from 10-11. The kindergarten students will come to school dressed in their costumes. Please make sure they have clothes underneath the costume because we will be taking them off at the end of the party in the room before lunch. The children should bring a bag to put the costume in. Full face makeup and weapons of any kind are not allowed in school even as part of the costume. Please also leave accessories at home so they do not get lost. You may send in a treat for your child to pass out if you wish. Do not send anything with any type of nuts please.
Friday is a half day! Please send a snack for the morning, no lunch. Dismissal 11:45.
Language Arts Last week we reviewed main topic and then worked on key details in nonfiction pieces of text. We looked for information that would tell us about the main topic. We also continued practicing counting syllables. In writing we continued our work on writing our opinion, adding reason for our opinion. I will be assessing children independently for the end of the marking period this week. They will be choosing books on their own from leveled baskets to place in their Guided Reading bags.
Math/Science/Social Studies In Math we worked on the number ten, formation, counting in various patterns and hidden partners. In Social studies we completed our unit assessment, which came home Thursday. In Science we finished up our forces unit with an addition of air as a force. We did an experiment with blowing cotton balls, ping-pong balls, and golf balls using a straw to see how far they would move with air as our force. We also confirmed our learning of more force making objects go faster and farther. We will be completing our assessment this week.
