Here’s what’s happening in Mrs. Debra and Mrs. Sharon’s class:
Our class has been very busy this past month exploring patterns, numbers, sequencing story events and learning to read. Each day we practice breaking words down into individual sounds and blending sounds to make new words. We are becoming very good at hearing sounds and reading words. We have already learned most of the letter sounds along with several digraphs (ng, th, ch, sh, ck). Sight words covered so far are: I, a, to, little, is, have, the, am, orange, yes, no, red, black.
Our class has engaged in several discussions about SELF-CONTROL. What does it mean, how does it look and can I exhibit self-control? Please start a discussion at home about self-control as opposed to “Mrs. Debra control”. Your support is appreciated.
During October, we will continue to explore numbers and sets, counting, letter-sound identification, and vowel teams - all while using our growth mindset! As always, we still have plenty of time for singing, dancing, and having fun!
A special thanks to everyone who has sent goodies for our Prize Box---You are the best!! Continue to clean out that toy box and send gently used items to school for our prize box. It is a great way to re-cycle!
At any time, please feel free to replace your child’s current folder with a new folder. Any color or type is acceptable.
