I hope everyone had a great weekend! It was so nice to see so many families at Mix, Move, and Mingle! It was an awesome PTO event and I hope you were able to enjoy it as much as I did! :)
Tomorrow night (Tuesday, 9/26) is Welcome Back Night here at Willett. Please come visit between 6-8pm tomorrow night. I will be starting my presentation at 6:25pm per Mr. Cateon's email. Please try your hardest to be on time for that. I will be going over a lot of important classroom information. Children are allowed to attend, but must be under your supervision the entire time -- i.e. if you are going to visit an older/younger child's classroom, you must bring your first grader as well.
Today children are participating in "A Walk Through the Willett Way." We will be visiting different areas of the school and discussing how to follow the Willett Way in each area. Students will be bringing a blue note home today that goes over the expectations on the back. Please talk to your child about his/her experience today.
Our phonics skills this week are: short o and adding -s to the end of a word to make it plural. Our spelling words are: ox, pop, lock, mop, pot, hop, hot, rock, mom, got, use, help. Our sight words are: help, use, get.
This week in Math we will continue with counting strategies and number stories. We will take our Unit 1 Assessment on Thursday and Friday of this week.
I'll end with my weekly reminder to please send your student in with a water bottle and snack daily. As you will most likely notice tomorrow night, our classroom is very hot/humid. Students are encouraged to drink water throughout the day.
I hope to see you tomorrow night,
