A few announcements before we get into our week:
- Please make sure you are checking your student's home folder every day! There was a lot of notes and work sent home this week.
- Open House is going to be on Thursday, September 17 at 6:30. I am looking forward to seeing all of you!
- The PTO is having their Back to School Bash on Thursday, September 10! It is from 5:30-7:30 and all information can be found on the PTO website: - http://www.indiantrailpto.org/ITl/index.cfm
- If you have not sent in an art smock yet, please do so soon. They have been getting pretty messy in art class!
We started off our week with some "apple picking". We practiced our name recognition by picking apples around the room that had each student's name on it. We colored them and hung them up on our apple tree... you'll see it when you come to our room for Open House :)
After, we read 10 Apples Up On Top by Dr Seuss. We then practiced our math skills by counting on to get to 10 apples.
Then, we read Have You Filled a Bucket Today? by Carol McCloud. The book focuses on saying and doing nice things for people to "fill their bucket". You can also ask your student about their invisible bucket and our classroom bucket! I am so proud of them for how they have been acting this week after reading this book! They have all been such good friends to each other and so polite in the classroom.
After, we went on a scavenger hunt around our school community to learn about the different important places (principal's office, library, nurse, and social worker to name a few). We collected different items from all these helpers to remind us of them and put them together to make a David face. A note explaining this in detail went home on Thursday.
We also did more name recognition practice and colored our names... those are also in the pictures!
Hope you enjoy your long holiday weekend!
