Back to school-1st day again

Well, after 4 days we finally got back today. We had an awesome day. Your child took home the same phonics patterns for this week. Remember we are learning the pattern so discuss other words to fit the pattern that are not on the list. Practice the high frequency words throughout the week and point them out if you find them in public or in reading you do nightly for your reading log.

Practice counting with your child. Count the number of steps you take from one place to another. Have your child count items or practice skip counting by 10s and 5s. We are really working on place value for the next 6 weeks. Give them a number and ask what number comes before and what number comes after.

We went to art for special area and I was amazed at the art work Ms. Francis got out of your child. Please watch our photo show below. Thank you for all your hard work.

We decorated our journals today and will unveil those one day soon. A HUGE thank you to Wal-Mart for donating 10 journals and to Connor's family for donating 5 to the class. They look awesome and we can't wait to write in them each day.

Have a great week! :)Mrs. Wright
