Classroom News

 

For the week of Nov 12-15

In Reading: We have finished our unit on "Building a Reading Life" and launched our journey into "Reading to Learn" (non-fiction books). We started by sorting/building our non-fiction library in the classroom! I could already see kids stashing non-fiction books in their cubbies! Great news! I applied for a grant with the Thurston County School Retirees Association and received $150 to purchase books for our classroom library! I have my list and will be shopping soon! In Writing: We are fortunate to have Reading/Writing support with Emily Petrie and Tiffany Leighty. Each of these educators is taking groups of children out of the classroom for focused work to boost reading, phonics, spelling, writing skills. The groups will change some time after Winter Break and are geared to meet the particular needs of the group based on assessments I have given. Please let me know if you have any questions. In Theme: The children are learning about some of the traditional food of the Coast Salish people through books, worksheets and individual research. Digital Citizenship: On Fridays, Librarian Kari has been instructing the children about what it means to be a good digital citizen. Ask your child what they know about that! They are learning (or already know) their sign on and password and can access "Typing Club" through the Library resources. Your child can access the Library resources at your home as well. Caron's Mathematicians: These mathematicians continue the Place Value work by building "measuring tapes" and measuring objects in the classroom. Students are able to identify the mathematical practices and enjoy "using tools" and "attending to precision". At home: do the Tens and Time Home Connection.
