Weekly Newsletter

Snapshot of the week:
     This week, our class will be working on the letters "Pp-pan-/p/" and "Jj-jug-/j/" in Fundations. The formation and familiarity continues to improve each week! Because of our 3-day week coming up, we will be taking a break from new letters and doing a review of what we've learned so far. This includes: t, b, f, i, u , m, n, c, o, a, g, e, r, p, and j! We will have math centers this week working on subitizing (recognition of die number patterns) and number recognition. We will continue talking about our pumpkin from Cider Hill (which had 620 seeds!) and understanding what happens next to pumpkins! 
     Parent conferences are scheduled for Tuesday, November 8th. Please check your email for a link to the Sign-Up Genius page where you can choose a conference slot. If you haven't received the email, please let me know and I will send it to you! If you are unable to find a time that works for your schedule, I will try my best to accommodate you!
