Some fun in September

Hello families…

As we all eagerly anticipate Fall to come, we continue to move ahead with our first “Fall” like event, tasting apples. We tasted six apples last Friday and everyone picked a favorite. Our outside board will transition to a writing about which apple is their favorite and why. Expect to see this change over the course of the week.

We are finishing up Superkids unit 1&2 Friday of this week. We will have our end of level test next Monday and word list test Tuesday 18th. We are working hard on /th/ and /wh/ blends. Continued practice at home will also help with memorization and familiarity of the words.
I had an opportunity to look over everyone’s Footprints, and they did a great job! Keep it up! Another will come home Monday and will be due Friday.

We will start chapter 2 in math this week. Our chapter 1 test will be tomorrow (Monday).
We are continuing our senses unit in Science and will move onto ‘touch’ this week.

Constitution Day: Mon. Sept., 17th
Fall Conferences: Mon. Sept., 24th and Tues. Sept., 25th
(Please sign and return the conference sheet to me this week.
