Please return extra book bags!

We have run out of book bags and now there aren't enough for each student in the class.  Please return extras that may be kicking around your house.  Remember, the book bags are returned to class each Monday.

Happy Monday!

This is a quiet week in the classroom which is perfect for crafts and lots of learning opportunities!

In math, we are focusing on counting from 0 - 20, and counting down from 20 - 0.  Practice at home to solidify these facts!

The sound of the week is "r".  The "r" in French is called "air" and is a noisy sound that you make in your throat.  The sound-symbol connection is that of a lion roaring..."rrrrrr".

We were so involved in coloring and reading our book called, "J' aime manger", that we ran out of time to create a spelling list for the week..we will do so tomorrow  (3 words).

Take some time to read the book your child prepared and read with them (J'aime manger).  They are developing quite the reading skills!

Have a great week.

Birthday wishes go out to Starla!  The silly birthday hat sure looks good on you!

This week at school, we have begun learning about "la nourriture", that is!  On Friday at 1:00, we will be making individual pizzas and if there are any parents who are able to help out, it would be appreciated!

The sounds of the week are the consonants "s" and "j".  The dictée words that the students helped to choose this week are:
1. jeu - game
2. jeudi - Thursday
3. jour - day
4. jaune - yellow

Good luck with practicing these words!

The Scholastic book orders are due on Friday, thanks!

Halloween Party 2013!
