Math Facts
Dear Parents,

As our Math lessons become more complicatied, it is very important that students understand and know their basic addition and subtraction facts.

Therefore, to continue practicing these number facts, every Monday, we will be having a timed quiz on addition and subtraction facts to 20.

At home you should practice these facts daily. Flashcards are a great way to do this. You can buy them at a dollar store or make them at home.
Picture Day
Tomorrow, October 16th, is Picture Day! Dress nicely!
Short Vowels
This week we will be starting to learn about vowels in class. This unit will begin with the short a sound. Over the next few weeks your child will be completing all of the short vowel sounds. We wanted to help you help your child identify some of these patterns at home while reading.

Short vowels can be heard when a word starts with a vowel or it is between two consonants.

Character education is an important part of your childís development. We wanted to inform you of some of the habits we are practicing in school. It would benefit your child to incorporate some of these strategies in the home as well.
  1. Always look and listen to the person speaking to show respect.
  2. Clean up after yourself.
  3. Use please and thank you when speaking to someone.
  4. Respect otherís ideas and property.
  5. Wait your turn and be patient.
