Good afternoon, parents! Just wanted to update you on a few things we have been doing in class!
*Last week, we finished up chapter 1 for Math, so the kids had an “assessment” on the whole first chapter. They did an outstanding job! I asked them what they thought about the test and they answered, “It was easy!” and “I feel like a 1st grader!” So proud of them!
*In Math we have been using the whiteboards and counters (bears, animals, cubes) to count to numbers 6, 7, and 8, and to write numbers 6, 7 and 8. On Friday, we had a review day and practiced writing and counting numbers 0-8. If you are looking to practice Math with your child, help him/her write and recognize numbers 0-8. 🙂
*In reading, we have been talking about syllables. We have been segmenting syllables and deleting syllables. After hearing a word, the students are able to clap out the syllables all by themselves! 🙂 We have been focusing on the letters M, S, T, R and the sounds the letters make. Again, practicing these letters with your child would be very helpful and beneficial.
*In writing, we have been continuing to think about what we want to draw about, drawing our picture, labeling our picture and some of the students are even trying to write a sentence to go along with their picture. 🙂 They are doing a fantastic job!
REMINDER: October 1st (Wednesday) is picture day!
