This week during reading time we will be comparing and contrasting using a Venn Diagram between Fiction and Halloween stories that we read.  We will continue to work on knowing what are the parts of a fiction story:  Characters, Setting, Problem, and Solution.  Make sure to ask your child to show you our "Character chant!"   

During math we will continue to work on writing our numbers 0-25 and being able to show 1-1 correspondence for those numbers as well.  We will also be making shape collages to describe attributes of shapes and compare 2-d (flat) and 3-d shapes.

In Science, we are continuing to learn about and observe how the trees and seasons are changing. We are writing in our science journals about the observations we make of the trees outside.

I enjoyed getting to meet and discuss your child's progress with families last Thursday at conferences, and am excited to meet and discuss with the rest of the families tomorrow at conferences.  Thank you for being an integral part of your child's education!

Wear your polka dots this Friday, October 16th!!! We are trying to win an assembly from the Pete the Cat series.  The title teachers will be entering the polka dot pants dance contest by making a music video.  One of the elements of the video is to have our kids wear polka dots and dance.  We thought since the walk a thon is Friday and we are already playing music, this would be a good chance to do both things at once.  So, we will ask kids to dress up in polka dots Friday and will video them dancing to the music as we start walking with each grade.
