Week 8

This week our story is "Boots for Beth." It is about a little pig who outgrows her boots. Her friends try to help her solve her problem. The sound this week is the voiced and unvoiced /th/.
Vocabulary words are:

Spelling words are:

Questions of the week:
Monday - How is the weather changing?
Tuesday - It is Alaska Day. What might you see if you went there?
Wednesday - It is Dictionary Day. What things do you find in a dictionary?
Thursday - It is Circus Day. Have you ever been to a circus?
Friday - It is Make a Difference Day. What can you do to make a difference?

In math we will be doing time to the half hour, counting up and back in the frames and arrows format, and trading pennies and nickels for dimes.

Your child should be able to count by 5's and 10's to 100 and by 2's to at least 20. You might want to do a little check at home.

We will be doing vocabulary checks on the words for the book "Guess Who". I will be sending home a list marked with the words your child does not know.

Spelling is not going very well. Last week I had 6 good tests and the rest missed three or more words. We have practice time but it doesn't seem to be working. I am going to try something else this week. Any help you can give me with spelling from home will be greatly appreciated.

Remember the field trip to Greer on Wednesday. Please return the permission slip and $1.00 to help cover the cost of the bus.

You might ask you child how they are for glue sticks and dry erase markers. I have no more markers. We have used up the few that we had at school. We use our white boards constantly so the markers are really important.

I will also be scheduling conferences for the October 13 & 14. The board has given us two early releases to accommodate these. Your child will be dismissed at 11:30 both of those days. Watch for the note that will have your scheduled time. If you get a time that doesn't work for you, please call and we can reschedule.

Thanks for all you do. Thanks for your donations for Jump Rope for Heart.

Have a great week.
