Our theme this week was "Teamwork." We read a story titled: Soccer. The story was about children playing soccer together. It was a nonfiction story that gave us lots of facts about playing soccer.
Phonics: final blends - words such as land, sand, fast, past, sink, wink
Comprehension: analyze story structure and the author's purpose
Grammar: writing sentences and sentence punctuation
Writing: "All About My Pumpkin" writing using descriptive sentences
Spelling: No list for next week!
This week we discussed Sportsmanship. We played a game called "Sportsmanship Charades" and had to act out the ending of a story using either good sportsmanship or bad. Then our friends had to guess. We became quite the experts by the end and could identify them quickly!
Next Week: October 15
There will be no newsletter sent out next week due to the shortened week. The next newsletter will be available on October 26th.
I am still in need of a few more family pictures (4x6 or smaller) for our class book entitled: "Our Families: God's Gift To Us."
Please continue to encourage your child to read a few minutes each night and to record these minutes on their reading calendar. We are very excited to see if we can read more minutes this month then we did last month!
Fire Station Field Trip
On Wednesday we went to the Pierz Fire Station. We had a great time there as Firefighter Steve, Chris and Phil helped us to learn many important fire safety rules. They also showed us the Fire Station and the equipment that they use to help fight fire. We even got a chance to spray water from the fire hose! Please check out our pictures on our Photo Album page.
Pumpkin Patch Field Trip
We will be going to the Triple S Pumpkin Patch on Tuesday! Please have your child wear weather appropriate clothing! We will leave around noon and return around 2:30PM. It is guaranteed to be a great day of learning and fun!!
Your child's nightly homework is to read at least 5-15 minutes per night to be marked on their Reading Calendar. This number will increase as your child becomes a better reader!
Math homework comes home daily. Please assist your child with this as needed. No homework will be sent home on Fridays and when we have a test or another form of assessment.
We have Phy Ed. on Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure your child has tennis shoes to wear on these days.
**It is highly recommend that students have appropriate shoes for running and playing safely at recess time too!**
Our hearts and prayers
