Wow! Last week was a busy week with Halloween, early-outs, and conferences! Thank you so much for taking the time out of your schedules to attend conferences! I have enjoyed getting to know you, and especially love getting to spend each day learning and growing with your child! I am SO proud of each and every student with the progress that they have made!
I will be sending home a few papers in Tuesday folders this week. Many of you asked about letter formations, sight words, and other things to get you connected to what we are learning! I will send home a page with all of the sight words we will be working on throughout the year. If your child does not know them now, that is okay! :) We will keep adding words each week, and you can help introduce those words to your child. Look for book orders coming home this week too! They will be due NEXT TUESDAY! This will be our Thanksgiving/Christmas book order! Get those stocking stuffers! :)
I will be sending home a page to get you connected to our SeeSaw class page. SeeSaw is a free app that we use throughout the year and you can see your child's work as they post their assignments to our class page. You can comment on their work, or talk to them about what they were learning when they get home!
Raz-Kids is another app that we will be using. It is a free reading app that allows your child to listen to stories, re-read them, then answer comprehension questions about the text they read. As they get points, they get to build a robot....which they will love! I will introduce this app to the kids this week and we will be using it during centers. You can work at home in Raz-Kids as well.
A few other iPad apps/computer games that we will use throughout the year are: ST Math, Letter School, TeachMe Kindergarten, Starfall, ABC Ya!, Pocket Chart Pro, Native Numbers, and Teach Your Monster to Read.
Continue to read to your child each night, and practice counting and correspondence with numbers! Have them count how many apple slices, legos in a pile, etc and write the number to help connect number quantity to the formation! :) Thank you for your continued involvement with your child's education!! You are all amazing parents!!
This week we will be beginning Unit 2 Week 3 in Wonders, and starting chapter 4 in GoMath! Click on the curriculum tabs to see our focus for the week. In science, we are wrapping up pumpkins, bats, and starting turkeys! Gobble, gobble! Have a wonderful week!
