Language Arts:

This month we begin doing spelling tests. I will be sending the list of words home the Friday before. Please practice the words with your child so that they can have success during their spelling test. The words will start off simple and get harder as the year goes on. A great time to practice is in the car on the way to and from school or other places. Simply ask them to spell the words for you as you are driving. If they have trouble, sound the word out slowly and let them tell you each letter as you say each sound. Keep practicing the sight words and reading at home as well.

Math:

We are going to be continuing to work on our math skills. We are going to be learning more about money values and also skip counting. The class goal is for everyone to be able identify the penny and nickel and to count by 10s by the end of October. These are skills you can try at home as well. If your child has mastered them, start talking about the other coins and counting by 5s.

Theme:

This month the theme is Creepy Crawlies. This means we are going to be learning about insects, arachnids, scorpions, slugs, and all things that fit into the “creepy crawly” category. The students will be learning how to tell the difference between insects and spiders. The class will also be learning how to appreciate all living creatures, not just the cute and cuddly ones. Bugs serve an important role in our environment and the class will learn about what they do to help our planet. They will learn about the food chain and where bugs fit in.

Language Arts:

Now that we have started getting into a routine, we can really dive into our studies. The students will be working on their writing skills and reading skills daily. We are starting up sight words in September. So, be prepared for them to have a list of words each week that they are learning. Sight words are words that they can read quickly without having to sound it out. Please help them practice those words each week so that they can feel confident in their reading.

Math:

We are off to a good start in math. The students are learning basic skills early in the year, such as number recognition and counting skills. But we will start introducing more adding and number work as the year goes on. To help at home, please work on recognizing at least all of the numbers from 0-20. The more numbers they recognize the easier it will be to write them and work with them in the class.

Back to school!

Welcome to E3! I am so excited to start the school year. I have a lot of fun activities planned. We will do a lot of hands on work along with art. Please note, we will get messy. At the beginning of the year we will do quite a bit of review and learning the rules of the classroom.

Our theme for the month is All About Me! We will learn about everyone’s favorites, their families, the human body and hygiene. This will be a great time to learn about each other and creating bonds in the class.

Language Arts: We will begin the year with reviewing letters and sound and move to a focus letter each week. We will talk about words that start with that letter and the sound of the letter. We will have one worksheet a day along with center time to reinforce learning.

Math: Just like with language arts, we will begin the year with reviewing number recognition and writing. I find that hands on activities help with reinforcing recognition, counting, number order and counting on.

Please note, we do show and tell Friday mornings with free choice. Please do not send any weapons.
