From Mrs. Hicks' desk…
Thank you to everyone who is working hard to make sure that your child is completing their homework and bringing their binder everyday! What a difference that makes!
If you have not been able to send in your child's money for their Scholastic Weekly Reader ($5.00 for the school year), please do so as soon as possible. About a third of the class has submitted their money. We are not able to order the subscription as a grade level until everyone has paid. Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter. J
This Weeks' Focus
We had a good first week of reading rotations last week. We are working on learning to work independently and how to complete our Color Jobs (literacy centers-Listening, Computer, Reading Street, Phonics, Writing, and Comprehension).
We will read Miss Bindergarten Takes a Field Trip for our Scott Foresman unit. We will
also begin learning about apples-their
parts, how they grow and the many
ways we use them.
bakery, post office, fire station
Library, park, chaperone
Our focus this week will be on the color Green and the shape Square. We use Calendar time to recognize the penny, nickel and dime, their amounts and how to add them in our piggy bank. We also learn ones, tens and hundreds place value counting how many days we have been in school.
