This week we’ve been busy learning about:
Reading: We will read Lily’s Purple Plastic Purse and having conversations about character traits, setting, beginning, middle, and end. We’ll be going on a scavenger hunt and using our map skills to find Lily’s things.
Writing: We began writing about our 1st day in first grade and some of our favorite things from this summer. We began talking about what good writers do when they write like using capital letters, end marks, good finger spacing, and best handwriting.
Social Studies: Why school rules are important
Great Literacy Tip: Read every night to your child or with your child for 10-15 minutes.
Class Dojo: Your Child Has been earning Dojo Points All Week for respecting themselves, others, and being 100% accountable. I will explain my classroom behavior management more at Curriculum Night.
Water Bottles: Yes! The students are encouraged to bring water bottles to school. Please write their name on your child's water bottle so it doesn't get lost :)
