Week 13

We are starting a new reading book this week. It is called "Here and There." The difficulty of the reading level will increase in this book. The stories will become much longer and the vocabulary more difficult.

The first story is "I Am a Butterfly." This isn't a great time to study butterflies. We will do some activities now but will save most of them until Spring when I order butterfly larvae to watch grow and hatch.

The sound the week is /ch/ made by the letters ch and tch. The new vocabulary is:

In math we will continue reading and making graphs. Practice on math facts and skip counting by 2's, 5's, and 10's are to your child's benefit.

Spelling is moving along. The kids are getting better at moving thru the program so it is becoming easier.

We will be doing our yearly Thanksgiving feast on Tuesday, Nov. 22. If any of you can come help prepare food, set tables, clean up, or whatever please let me know. The cost will be $3 for each person attending. It is a fun time where we dress up in Native American or Pilgrim costumes and sit to eat with all the first and second grade classes.

Remember that Thursday is an Early Release for Professional Development and Friday is No School in observance of Veteran's Day.

Have a great week.
