Dear Parents, Families, and Friends,
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your child this school year. We are busy learning many things this nine weeks. Our focus is on learning our sight words, writing our first and last names, recogning all upper and lower case letters. as well as the sound each makes.
In Science, we are learning about Animals. In Math, we are learning about Shapes, Shapes, Shapes!!!!!!!: Please review the following shapes woth your child: 2-dimensional shapes; circle, triangle, hexagon, oval, diamond, and the quadrilaterals: square, rectangle, and rhombus. Please continue to work on counting and recognizing numbers, as well as labeling sets to tell how many are in the set, through at least twenty, and beyond!!!!
We are working hard to master all of the skills for the 2nd nine weeks. We will begin Accelerated Reader this nine weeks as well. Students will read their Media Center books, and then take a computer based test to assess comprehension. These test scores are recorded and tracked, so that students get an accurate record of how well they are comprehending what they read. Please help your child by reading their book to them and asking questions about the story. The children are doing a fantastic job, but we cannot afford to get slack in our efforts to help them reach their highest potential.
Thank you for your continued support!!!!!!!
Mrs. Butler and class
