Language Arts:

     This month we are finishing up our review of the letters and sounds.  Your student will get their first homework and spelling list on Friday, September 14th.  It will be due back on Friday, September 21.  You can stick it in the drop box on the purple cubbies when you return it.  The first spelling test will be on Wednesday, September 19th.  If your student does not get 100%, they will get another chance to take the test on the following day.  I encourage you to help study the words at home.  If you are limited on study time, studying in the car can also be effective.  They don’t necessarily have to write the words to study them. 


     By September we will be doing more work in our workbooks.  The class will also be doing daily math games to help them with the skills that they need to be able to complete the work and also to gain better number skills.  The math games are a lot of fun and the students don’t even realize that they are learning too. 

Science/Social Studies:

     September is the the month that we focus on the five senses.  The kids enjoy bringing show and tell items that demonstrate each of the five senses.  They will also be doing activities as well as projects that help to show what each sense means and how it works. 

     The second half of the month we are going to be doing our nutrition unit.  This is an important unit where we discuss the food groups, eating healthy, and living a healthy lifestyle.  They will bringing “something to taste” on the last Friday of the month.  They will be identifying not only how it tastes, but what food group it falls into.  This does not have to be something to share with others, but if you would like to send something that the whole class can share, that would be welcome as well.
