Warm applesauce is the best! Last week we finished up our apple investigation with a yummy treat – crockpot applesauce. All morning long our classroom smelled so wonderful and we just couldn’t wait to taste our treat. Has your child told you about this delicious treat yet? Going home on Monday will be their apple prints. Who knew that such interesting pictures could be created using an apple core!
Our school has only three rules to follow: Be Safe...Be Respectful...Be Responsible. Last Friday all the children in the school earned an outside picnic in our school garden for good behavior in the Cafeteria. The weather was perfect for this special and fun activity.
We were able to use our school I-Pads on Friday and play some sight word games. We will be using technology more and more in the classroom as well as when we head to Library on Monday’s with Mrs. Charles.
This week our Essential Question is: What makes a pet special? Can you imagine a dog or a dinosaur coming to school? We will be reading two great stories that will help us to figure out if this is a good or bad decision. Our phonics focus is “L” blends. This can be a challenging sound combination – as such, we will practice all week. Our spelling words are: clip, flip, slip, flag, black. Our sight words are: plan, be. We will be reviewing win and sit from last week.
We are finishing up Unit 2 this week in our Everyday Mathematics program. We will be practicing more with “Start-Change-End” diagrams and then turning these numbers into Number Sentences.
This week we will be investigating the weather. We will focus on what the weather is like outside our classroom windows and on the playground as well as how to get ready for a big storm.
Are you able to volunteer in our classroom? We would love your help from 9:45 – 10:30 daily. Let me know if you are available. I have copied and pasted below the volunteer requirement information directly from our School Website.
“All volunteers need to watch the Bullying Video on the SAU #19 website under Special Projects and then Anti- Bullying Project. In addition you will need to sign the Verification of Bullying Training Form also found on the website.
SAU 19 will host fingerprinting opportunities for Designated Volunteers throughout the school year on the first Wednesday of each month from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon. There will also be fingerprinting in New Boston from 5:30-6:45 pm on November 15th before the PTA Meeting in the library.”
