Happy Monday! Students are coming home with their new (beautiful) Willett folders. Please be sure to return these folders each day so important information can come home daily. In it today, every child is bringing home a behavior chart. This is something I will discuss at Welcome Back Night, but in short, students color in what color they landed on each day for you to see. The behavior chart is returned to school the next morning. Behavior charts stay home Friday after school and students will receive a new one on Monday. Please review your child's chart with him/her each night and be sure it is returned for the next day.
This week we are discussing Animal Fantasy with the story Pig in a Wig. Students are also focusing on the short i sound and final x sound. We use ECRI and Lively Letters to help reinforce our phonics skills of the week. We will be attempting Reading Centers this week!
In Math we are focusing on Counting Strategies and using Math Tools. Students have played Monster Squeeze, Top It, and a few other games in Math. We LOVE our Math games. Be sure to check out Everyday Math online with the login information that came home last week!
Many parents turned in the Whale Wishes! The hallway by the office looks great covered in welcome notes to students! Many have also turned in the $6 for Scholastic News! Thank you!!! The Scholastic News money will be collected until 9/26.
Friday is Mix, Move, and Mingle night here at Willett! I hope to see you there. :)
Please be sure to attend Welcome Back Night here at Willett on Tuesday, 9/26. Each grade will be assigned a presentation time (this information will be sent home soon). First grade teachers will be presenting, in their classrooms, from 6:25pm - 6:40pm - please try to be here for my 6:25pm presentation. I will be sure to start at 6:25pm so those who have to go to another grade level's presentation can make it on time.
Have a great week,
