Show and Tell

Please send show and tell items on Friday morning. Remember, please do not send expensive or dangerous items.

This week’s show and tell will be items with a long or short U in them.

Website of the Week

Each week I spotlight a website that you can use at home to help your children with what we are working on in class. All websites can be found on our class sqworl.

Find the Dog’s Bone – On this game, students use a 100’s chart to find the hidden bone. Students work on understanding numbers and number relationships with this game.

Video of the Week

Each week I spotlight a YouTube video that you can use at home to help your children with what we are working on in class.

Short Vowel Song – This song goes over the sounds made by the short vowels.

Announcements & Reminders:

– The community service club is collecting new and gently used toys for charity. Please send in toys to donate. This is a great time to talk about charity and how it connects to Muslim Holidays (one of our Social Studies topics).

– Please continue working with your children on tying their shoes. This is an important self help skill that also aids in fine motor skill development.

– If you are planning extended vacations surrounding the holiday break, please let me know ASAP. I WILL be sending home a homework packet for the holiday, and would like every child to receive it.
