Ms. Leah's Class - Room 103
Hello Room 103 Parents, March 1, 2017
Kindergarten and First grade students continue to work with our short vowel unit in Language Arts. We are currently on Short vowel U. First grade is also focusing on writing opinion pieces and putting together sentences. Kindergarten students are working on rhyming. In math, Kindergarten students are now working on representing, counting, and writing numbers 11 to 19. First grade students are working on number and operations in base 10. Many of our students are working on multiplication with our Montessori shelf work!
We will continue our studies of solid, liquid or gas in science. In social studies, we are having fun with maps, the kids were shocked to learn we didn’t always have a smart phone to tell us how to get places! If you have any maps (city, zoo, Disneyland, etc.), please send them in (they will be returned)! We will continue with maps (keys/symbols/legends) for a couple more weeks this month and then we will learn about physical and human features in the world.
We continue to work in our journals each day and many of the students are nearing the end of their journal. I understand primary journals are getting tough to find. They can be ordered on Amazon.
This month in our character education program we will be discussing respect.
As always, a HUGE “Thank you” to Zachary’s Mom (Heidi), Eddison’s Mom (Amber), and Lennox’s Mom (Dawndy) for volunteering their time in the parking lot in the mornings, as well as in the classroom. I am so grateful for the help!
Our class won the Box Tops competition!!! Our ice cream party will be this Friday!
Please know, we have completely run out of plastic spoons. If you can send in a box or two, that would be great! If we don’t receive any, please send one with your student if they have something for lunch or snack that requires a spoon. It’s been hard watching them eat applesauce with a fork. We are also very low on Clorox wipes. Thank you!
