    This week in our 95% Phonics Program we are learning the letters l, r, and short o. Please click this link to find more activities to do with your child: 95% Phonics Activities. You will also notice your child’s second paper pencil test on the skills taught in 95% phonics in your child’s folder coming home later this week. We will take unit tests throughout the school year to monitor phonological awareness skills and phonics skills. 

    I made a quick video about your child’s 95 Phonics workbook coming home today. Click here to watch the video. Thank you for your support!

    Today we began our unit on sorting. We are learning how to 1) sort by attributes, 2) count the amount in each group, 3) sort the groups by amount. We practiced these skills using M &M’s!  The children sorted them by color, then they counted how many of each color they had. Finally, they sorted the color groups by amount. We will sort various objects the rest of this week. By the end of this unit, the children should be able to do our 3 step sort for multiple attributes of the same group of objects. 

    Thank you to all who returned Practice Sheet #7 today. Practice Sheet #8 is coming home in your child's folder today. Thank you for spending a little time each day on the Practice Sheet. 

    Progress Reports will be coming home in the Report of Learning Folders on Wednesday, November 15th.  Please read over it, sign it and return it to school Friday, November 17th. 

    Parents, please help me with the following items: 

    1) Students need to wear velcro or slip on tennis shoes to school each day. Please do not send your child in shoes that have laces, winter slip on boots, lace-up boots, or dress shoes. These are not allowed at school.

    2) Please also refrain from letting your child bring toys, jewelry, watches, purses, and Pokeman cards to school. These items are considered toys and need to be kept at home.
