During this past week the students have continued reading and writing about their families. We will finish up our unit on families early next week. In math the students will continue learning about number order, addition, making the number 10, and solving story problems. Next week will be dedicated to parent conferences. Students will be out of school at 11:00 on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I will be sending home confirmation of conference times on Monday and Tuesday. Students will be given a reading log where they are required to document the time they spend reading each day.Readingis the cornerstone to learning. The recommended daily reading time is 20 minutes. This may initially be accomplished as time spent reading to your child. As the year progresses your child should read to you and eventually may then read independently. A new log will be sent home every Friday and may be downloaded from the classroom website.
