A Note from Mrs. Elil

I can’t believe we’ve completed the first month of school already!

We are off to a great start learning about the rules of our classroom, and how to be safe in our school. We had our first Fire Drill and a couple assemblies as well.

In our Literacy Block we read different versions of Fairy Tales- The Three Billy Goats Gruff, The Three Little Pigs and The Big Bad Wolf and we are finishing the theme with Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We are also reading chapter books from the Magic Tree House Series. We read Dinosaurs before Dark and our next book will be The Knight at Dawn. We are enacting these stories in our centers and are starting to draw and write our messages using the Sound Map. We also play some large and small group games to get familiarized with our sounds and letter names, and also do Buddy Reading.

In Math we are wrapping up Chapter 1- Represent, Count and Write Numbers 0 to 5. Soon we will start Chapter 2- Compare Numbers to 5.

The children enjoy the Math on the Spot videos and the other student Interactive Videos on Think Central as we learn different math ideas and they also love the different math centers where they practice the skills that they learned.

Please be sure to schedule for the Parent Teacher Conferences to be held on Oct 18, 19 and 22.

Thank You!
