Mrs. Borden and Mrs. Jones’ Newsletter
Week of September 18, 2017
***In Math, we are working on Identifying and Describing Shapes. We will work on: rectangles, squares, circles, triangles, hexagons, as well as the solid figures and identifying the flat surfaces of solid figures. We will continue to work on describing and sorting by color, shape, and size. Please continue to work on shape and color identification as well as counting as high as you can.
***In Reading, our new story is: Plaidypus Lost and we will be discussing the Sequence of the story. Our new amazing words are: platypus, lost, market, around, found, groceries. We are working on the beginning sounds in words and identifying words with the same beginning sound. We will continue to work on rhyming pairs as well as syllables.
***The small reader that came home with a Please Sign and Return stamp can be read together and then logged on the AR sheet. We found the sight word “am” and read it together as well as worked on coloring the illustrations. Thanks for reading at home.
***We read a book all week on “Whole Body Listening” that helps us follow the SPARTY way. We have enclosed a clean copy of all the things we need to be a whole body listener for your reference.
***Fall Festival Information: There will be a meeting at the Chill Out in Shenandoah on Sept. 19th at 6:30 pm. If anyone is interested in helping out, please send in a note with your name, phone number, and email address so that we can get you on the contact list. Thanks in advance! Please also send in the money for the fall festival as soon as possible so that we can purchase the supplies for the day.
***Reminders: Please continue to check folders each day and clean them out from that day’s papers and sign and return anything that is stamped. Please also continue to review sight words and read each night. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
