We have been busy this past month learning routines: how to use classroom materials, and how to work together with respect and kindness. Students have worked hard learning how to take care of their backpacks and Home/School folders.  They are settling into our Morning Meeting routine. Thank you for all the support you give to your child and SCS.

Reading/ Writing:  Students are learning how to use their reading boxes.  The students enjoyed listening to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See?  We created a class book based on this story to help us learn our classmates’ names. The letters t, s, d, m, n, r  were introduced and students have been practicing the names of these letters, the sound they make and how to form them correctly through games and hands on activities. Writing journals have been introduced.  Students are learning how to use this tool to practice their writing skills. The following sight words have been introduced: I, a, see, the, at, is, it, in.  Students are currently practicing where to find them on the Word Wall , how to say them, and some students are beginning to use them in their Writing Journal. The students enjoyed listening to Hop on Pop. We used this book to learn about rhyming words. They have had many opportunities to work on rhyming word games and activities. All students have been using I-pads as a tool to practice how to correctly form letters and numbers.

Math:  Students have been working on a lot of number sense games like Monster Squeeze, One More One Less, Bunny Hop, 20 Penny Take Away.  We have learned a fun song to learn how to make tally marks.  Students have played games to practice using tally marks.  Students have been exploring a variety of tools and materials like: geoboards, pattern blocks, shape templates, and base -10 blocks.  Students enjoyed listening to Ten Apples up on Top by Dr. Seuss.  Students have created a class book based on this story to practice writing and recognizing numbers.  We read other books based on ten, 10 Little Rubber Ducks by

Eric Carle and Ten Little Caterpillars by

Bill Martin Jr. Afternoon friends just completed Unit 1 Math Assessment.
