Weekly Newsletter #2

August 16-20, 2010

From Mrs. Hicks' desk…

What a wonderful first week of school! I was amazed at how well your children picked up on our procedures-wow! I did pull a few cards but I think everyone will get the hang of it, it just takes time. I'm very excited about getting to know your boys and girls, they have some fun personalities!

This Weeks' Focus

Language Arts

We spent a great deal of time learning about nocturnal animals-like Chester. We also learned the difference between being a good little monkey or a naughty little monkey like the Five Little Monkeys. We will begin our study of letters and sounds using the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. We will also begin Unit One of our Scott Foresman reading program. Please help your child practice their Sight Words and ask them about this week's amazing words!
