Week 3: Plants and Animals

Hello Families of Room 104,

We will be starting our homework packets this week as well as our sight word study. Your homework packets can be found in your new material bags. If you have not picked up your bag please contact me to set up a time to pick it up. Please do one homework sheet a day as well as a handwriting sheet to support your students fine motor skills.

On Friday we will be doing a quick sight word check. Our sight words this week are: the, of, and, a, to.

We will also be starting small groups this week! YAY! I will be sending calendar invites for your small group time so keep an eye out.

I will also be beginning to assess your students reading levels. Giving any assessment virtually is new for everyone. The most important thing is that I see how your child can read and interact with words. This will help me be the best teacher I can be for them. I’ll be giving calendar invites for this as well.

Last! We will be doing a Murray tradition, a Gingerbread Man hunt! This is an activity that gives the students a chance to meet our administrative team and take a tour of the school. They search for the Gingerbread Man that stole our cookies. You will need to provide your child a cookie that they can decorate with icing and sprinkles.
