The Little School Bus

We were off to a busy start this Monday! We are beginning our first unit in the Scott Foresman Reading Street series.  In each unit, there is a "big question" that the stories are centered around.  This unit, students will explore the question, "How do we work, live, and play together?".

Our story this week is The Little School Bus by Carol Roth.  In The Little School Bus,  we are talking about how we get to school. 
This week we are focusing on letters Aa and Bb.  Students will learn the letter sounds,  how to write the uppercase and lowercase letters, and words that begin with those letters.

In math,  students are learning to count groups of objects and how to write numbers 0-5.  

I went to the library this evening and found many books about numbers and counting to incorporate reading into our math block!

Some reminders:
- Please make sure to empty old papers out of your child's folder each night...they pile up fast!
- Open House is Wednesday 4-5:30. Come check out your child's classroom!
- Homework packets go home on Mondays and are due on Fridays. Please make sure your child is doing a page a night!
