September 9, 2013

This week at school we will continue to review the alphabet and numbers to ten.  We have also started our focus on our special French sounds, starting with "a" (this letter in French says "ahh") .  We learned that this is the sound you might make when you go to the dentist to show your sore tooth.

To assist with the focus of this sound, we will be working with several spelling words that your child has written in his / her agenda.  Please practice these words a few times this week, as, on Friday, I will test the students (dictée) to see how they hear/spell these small words.  The words for this week are:
1. ma
2. la
3. sa
4. pa (this is not actually a word in French, however, the students are encouraged to hear the letters in words at this point in the year!).

Meet the teacher night is this Thursday, September 12, from 6 - 7 pm.  Please meet in the classroom at 6:00 sharp to get a quick run-down of our year to come.  You are welcome to ask questions and to have a guided tour of our classroom (by your wonderful child) before heading outside to eat a collaboratively made fruit salad. More information about this night will be sent home in your child's agenda.

Thanks ~ Becky
