We finally have made it officially to the fall season on September 22 and the children were excited to change our season on the board to fall.
What is going on in the classroom:
Math: We are learning more about our number sentences, number bonds, missing addends, the equal sign, doubles, and doubles +1. You can check out some more info here on the parent info page about Eureka Module 1 tip sheet: sheet https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1klCx3crur-Inwk7JhlPJUb9EnAdlsw3P?ogsrc=32
English Language Arts: We have learned all about the short vowel sounds of “a”, “i”, “u”. We will continue with short “u” next week too. We have been practicing reading and comprehension. We practice our sight words daily in class and vocabulary words. I have been introducing one vocab word a week and the children love to see it in lights and are using it in their daily sentences for practice. We also enjoy reading Dragon Masters a chapter book at the end of the day.
Social Studies: We have learned about several symbols of the USA such as: the American flag, the Statue of Liberty, the bald eagle, and the Liberty Bell. We have had a lot of fun creating art projects that went along with these lessons. You may have noticed our bald eagles at back-to-school night and be on the lookout for the Statue of Liberty project that has been hung in our classroom as well. We have had lots of compliments from many teachers and visitors.
Science: We learned about our 5 senses and nutrition. We learned about the effects of eating too much sugar and we are going to continue to learn about good nutrition, taking care of ourselves, food groups, exercising, and keeping our teeth healthy.
Religion: We learned about God’s creations, the holy trinity, and the holy family. We also enjoyed creating some fun art crafts.
Next Week we will meet our big buddies in 7th grade. We will listen to a story with Ms. Carr and complete a fun religious project with our buddies with instruction from Mrs. Buford.
Next Week is also Parent-teacher conferences and I look forward to meeting with all of you while discussing all the wonderful things your child is learning.
