First Week

We had a great first week of school! The kids did great, and I think we are going to have a fantastic year!

We have read a lot of books this week and have been working on routines, so you haven't seen a lot of worksheets come home. If you don't see worksheets in their folder, please assume we did some hands on activities instead of paperwork.

The first day of school, we read The Kissing Hand. This is a great book about a raccoon named Chester who goes to school for the first time. His mother reminds him that his family loves him and that loves goes with him wherever he is. We made a raccoon out of hearts that we have hanging up in our classroom. We were able to practice cutting and making dots with our liquid glue.
We read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and made mosaic letters using the first letter of our name. Once again, we were practicing making small dots with our liquid glue.

Another book we read was called Lacey Walker, Nonstop Talker. We talked about what it looks like to be a good listener, and made a diagram as a class.
Next week, we will start our more routine learning activities. We have a reading series that we use as a district that helps students think about books and gives them a start towards becoming readers. I'm looking forward to next week! It looks like it will be hot - our room doesn't circulate air very well, so make sure you dress your child cool, or in layers. Remember, flip flops are not allowed at school.

If you have any questions, let me know! I'm happy to help!
