Mrs. Childers' and Ms. Blackburn’s Monthly Newsletter

October 2016


We have now been in school 22 days and our students are well established in their classroom routines.  We are hard at work with daily calendar math, weather observation, graphing, presenting and learning new letters and words.


Students are busy everyday in writer's workshop, STAR reading groups, and small group writing, math, art and play centers.  It is very important now for students to keep up with learning their letters (identification, sounds, and formation), and words, which is critical to their progress in reading and writing.

Please review with your child the letters and words in their Skills Folder every day.

This month we will have units on the ocean, apples, and pumpkins.  Lots of fun activities and learning to look forward to.
