The class had a very active, fun, and memorable Fun Free Friday in the playroom! The playroom has many areas that are for every active participant. There’s the blocks, kitchen, writing, science area, and so much more!!!! I was very proud to see everyone engage and enjoy each other’s company while playing! The next Fun Free Friday falls on our annual Fall Festival, November 2nd. We are looking forward to that!
Parent/Teacher Conference Week is scheduled right after our Fall Break. Please visit the classroom this week to sign-up. I am able to meet with you at your convenience, my hours are flexible, (AM/PM). First Quarter Report Cards will be issued during the conference meeting.
Your child will be bringing home their Space Unit Science folder. Please review it with your child. There was so much interest and learning with this unit, and I’m sure your children will be happy to show you his/her work and what they learned.
For the first week of October the history lessons will be about Christopher Columbus and other explorers. After the Fall Break the class will be introduced to a new unit about Economics; earning and spending, banking, agriculture, and so much more. If you have a business background or own your own business and would like to be a guest speaker, please let me know! We will also hold a Bake Sale on the week of October 22. The class will decide who to donate the money earned.
Show and Tell begins on Monday, 10/1/18. The Student of the Day may bring one thing only to show and share with classmates. It may be a toy, book, photo, or anything that’s meaningful to them as long as you give him/her permission to bring it.
Handwriting Workbook lessons will begin after our Fall Break. This workbook will show your child techniques and skills involved in handwriting such as: posture, eye–hand coordination, pencil grasp, and letter formation.
Box Tops collection continues! There is a Pizza Party for the class with the most collections! Let’s start bringing them in and we can have a Movie and Pizza Day!
October Reading Logs will be sent home on Monday, October 1. Pizza Hut sponsors this wonderful reading program. After your child returns the October reading log, he/she will earn a Personal Pan Pizza coupon from Pizza Hut! Reading logs for October are due on the last day of the month, 10/31/18.
