Welcome to 2017!! It’s going to be a fabulous year!!
I am so excited to see all my precious kiddos tomorrow! They are all so amazing and THANK YOU all for being so amazing as well! You’re the first teacher and together WE GOT THIS!
We are going to keep pushing and expectations will be higher as the students push through to the end of the year. Report cards will go home this Thursday.
Reading: Students will continue to being books hope to read every night. Remember, if they are reading something that you think is too easy, it’s to improve fluency. Some students will begin bringing home chapter books. I do not expect the book to be read in one night. Simply record the chapter read on their reading log and make sure it is completed by Friday. They can bring home self choice picture books also if they want.
Word Work: We will begin analyzing nouns and classifying them. This will lead into describing these nouns with adjectives. This will not only be our focus in our word work but also in our writing.
Math: We will begin our unit on measurement and how important it is to understand how to measure with non-standard units. We will also be introducing time to the hour and half/hour along with identification and values of coins.
Science will be Winter and weather changes.
Champs Assemblies begin this week. They are held every Friday morning at 8:00 with one particular class hosting and presenting the week’s character trait. We will be presenting much later in the year. I will send more information home about this closer to the date.
Happy New Year!
