“Education is learning what you didn’t even know you didn’t know.” ― Daniel J. Boorstin 

National Fire Prevention Week


    Please Note:

The school wide expectation for students is to read or be read to for at least 20 minutes a night.

What We’re Learning

  Our school this year will be emphasizing the Responsive Classroom, which is an emphasis on establishing rules and appropriate behavior using consistent language and techniques all day long.

 Goals, expectations and the “social curriculum” in the first few weeks of school are critical to the overall success of the entire year.  We are working on a sense of group, establishing rules/consequences, and guided discovery. 

Building a sense of group includes simple group activities that help the children get to know each other better.  Guided discovery is a method by which areas of the room or classroom materials are introduced slowly and deliberately to the whole class. 

We will also do a variety of activities and assessments that will allow individuals to show where they are academically.  This will allow for the teacher to better meet the needs of each student. 

What We’re Learning

Please note that the school wide expectation is for every student to do 20 minutes of reading.

 Reading –  The children love to be read to and I read them a quick story after our morning meeting.  We will start a new Bill Peet book, “The Ant and the Elephant”.   We will continue with our Reading Street program. Our spelling words will be:

Dripped   dropping   excited   exciting  lifted  lifting 

hugged   hugging  smiled  smiling  talked  talking  

Math – We will work on identifying coins and counting the value of a group of coins.  Our goal with addition facts is to be fluent with addition problems up to 18.

Writing – We will be creating monsters and writing stories about them.

Science – We will start a new science experiment that deals with the concepts of sink and float.  Predictions will be made first.
