Second Week of School

This week, we'll be focusing on the letter Ll and it's sound. We'll write it using tablet paper and discuss it at the beginning of words. We're also working on reviewing shapes (circle, square, triangle, rectangle, diamond/rhombus, oval/ellipse and we'll touch on the pentagon and hexagon). The students will keep learning the color words and writing their names. Please practice writing names at home by only capitalizing the first letter of your child's name. I will begin assessing students on their personal information (name, address, and phone number).

During centers tomorrow the students will use this graph to practice shapes. My previous students enjoyed doing these graphing games! (I have no idea what's up with the words at the bottom!) They loved using the clear spinners to play this! A Kissing Hand graph went home last Friday that was very similar to this shape game.

You have a new homework calendar coming home tomorrow. Please let me know if there's anything that needs to be explained. Also, we need volunteers to send in the Oo and Gg snack this month. Please let me know if you would like to help out.
