It has been a wonderful week! Students are settling into routine and are working hard on skills. Thank you for all the support with homework!! Everyone is doing awesome!!

 Work for Next Week

We are beginning to work in small groups and centers for teaching foundational skill sounds and guided reading which is reading a book every day. We do this in small groups to give each student more one on one time with an adult. I am blessed to have two great assistants that help with this. You will hear about Mrs. Mary and Mrs. Kathleen. They will work with your child all year. Each lady is highly qualified and work so hard to educate our students. We are working on short vowel sounds in most groups and writing and reading words with this skill. The homework worksheets usually reflect that. We are working on stories about feelings and learning rules for conversation during read aloud time. We have started working on reading, writing and counting with numbers from 0-20. Students will be tested on this next week to get a snapshot of what words we need to work on. We will introduce ten frames next week which is another way of counting tens and ones. Students are building stamina as we do all this work. Be patient as they settle into this routine.

Snack and Behavior Chart

The behavior chart and snack chart should stay in your child’s homework folder each day. I will change the charts out at the beginning of each month. I will need to keep the charts at the end of the month to send in my monthly report on behavior.

Class Dojo

Class Dojo seems to be working great for our class. It will be the best and fastest way to get in touch with me. I will also send reminders, praises, concerns etc through this ap. You may access the ap by going to your ap store and searching classdojo. Download the ap and choose parent and enter our class code P3CYRP56G. I will also communicate by letters each week.
