October 27 - 31


Dear Parents,

      This week our theme is “Sing & Dance”. We will be learning about bats this week!

      This is Red Ribbon Week! Check the flyer sent home last week for the schedule of each daily activity. On Thursday, if your child wears slippers- I suggest they wear tennis shoes to school (for recess) and they can wear the slippers while inside. Please be sure they wear shoes they can put on themselves if they plan to take them off.

First grade will not be having a Halloween party. We will make treat bags and allow the students to pass out candy or treats (pencils, fruit roll ups, play doh…) to their class. Our class has 21 students if you would like to send something for your child to pass out.

Please assist your child with his/her homework, and read together for at least 10 minutes each night. Book it forms are due by Friday. New November forms will be sent home next Monday.

Target Skills:
Reading: “The Fun Kids’ Band”; Retelling
: Short U; Phonograms: -un, -ut, -ug
Language: Capitalizing Proper Nouns
