Hats off to 1B! I was delighted with our students performance this morning. Thanks, Parents, for giving your child your time to help with rereading practice. The fluency the students are developing is truly amazing! Also, thank you for the wonderful costumes. They absolutely ‘made’ the play.
It was lots of fun having so many parents join us for Learning Comes Alive. I am glad you were with us for the kick off of our new reading unit, Word Detectives. Please encourage your child to discover tricky words by being detectives using letter sounds, picture clues and end of the sentence clues. When reading with your child, remember, “Help, don’t tell”.
Thanks to Mrs. Bohara, our EAL teacher, for teaching us a lesson about Dewali this week. We enjoyed learning about the celebrations that take place in India and other areas of the world too. Our colorful rangolis are hanging in our classroom now.
The fun continues next week with swim class on Tuesday, October 24 and Halloween celebrations on Friday, October 27. (Please refer to the PSA letter for more details.)
Next week we will begin our new science unit, Air and Weather. The four classes will rotate through lessons with all of the grade 1 teachers.
We will also kick off a writing unit focusing on How To books.
Have a lovely weekend and enjoy The Trolls!
