Happy Friday! September 24, 2020

Remote Student Info -In our drop box I am returning your child’s folders.  Please pick them up  today .  I thank you for dropping it off on Wednesday. I will email you if I don’t see something that needs to be returned. Please have your child write their name on the work done electronically before you return it to me.

The children are doing well in class and at home. The rules for the classroom raising your hand when you have a question, not calling out  when your work is finished  must be followed so that all who are working can concentrate on their work.  We will be focusing on letter formation and phonic skills in reading.  We will have each day to silently read in class and to read with expression.

I have copies of work that we do in class for my students. All papers needed for the day/week  will be posted in Google class work posted and assigned. Please do not do it ahead of time or your child at home will not have it in front of them when it is done in class.  Today we used  Smiley Lion dot to dot , connecting numbers 1-53  and then we used it to write a story.

Addition flash cards should be started now. This will help them learn their addition facts to 20.

Have a great weekend! Keep reading at home!

We will cut it out and paste it into our first page of our journal.   Think about who is Smiley? What is he doing in your story? Does he have friends in your ? What does Smiley like to do in your story? Think about what you are going to write.  On a white piece of paper write your story and check it. Did you start with a capital letter for each sentence?

All the children have 1 pencil on their desk and remote learners were given one too.
