Our second full week of class is underway. It is sure to be an exciting year for everyone! I am looking forward to getting to know everyone better throughout the year as we work together to build and maintain a strong and positive learning community.
In Class this Week...
☼ Students will continue to learn a wide variety of routines including morning arrival, calendar time, Eat when you’re hungry, snack/lunch time, hallway behaviours, centre time, and closing time. Everyone is doing a great job!
☼ During reading/phonics, we are focusing on the letter “t” and the sound it makes. Students will be looking at words that start with “t,” printing “t” and reading a book that blends “a” and “t.” To blend words, have your child tap his/her finger under each letter in the word and say each sound, and then slide the finger under the whole word, left to right, “zipping” or blending the sounds together to form the word. Please keep in mind that these books are for decoding and blending, and are only one part of our reading program. Please return your Phonics book to school on the following Monday.
☼ In math, we are focusing on the numbers five and zero. We are looking at making, identifying and extending patterns, and identifying the biggest number in a set.
We are learning how to print PROPERLY using Handwriting Without Tears. We always start our letters and numbers at the top!
