October class news! 2017

HAPPY FALL!

october_owl_aaWell here we are in October already, and boy are we busy!  The children have settled into the weekly routine and we have been working very hard.  Our reading program is going very well and the children enjoy reviewing and adding words to our high frequency list.  This month we will be adding the following words:  a  to  have  is

We are reciting phonics daily and sequencing stories.  The children are aquiring all the correct terminology for the elements of literary form such as author, illustrator, title, etc.  We will practice further with identifying characters, setting and comparing and contrasting.

This month's character trait is TRUTHFULNESS which we have been putting into practice in the classroom.  Trustworthiness is an admirable quality to posess, as most people dislike being lied to, and like to deal with honest people whom they can trust.

We have been focusing on numbers 1-10 as we warm up and move on toward 20.  We have been base counting, sequencing, comparing values and learning about odd and even numbers.

The weeks ahead will also include pumpkin and Fall related activities, as well as a visit from the NFD! Thank you Mrs. Brown for making the arrangements! The children will get a chance to examine some equipment that is used by the firefighters, as well as see different trucks up close.  We will be reviewing fire safety basics with the children in class.  The month will close with our traditional Hat Day celebration on Tuesday, October 31st.  Further details about this day will come later.  Laughing
