Nov. 10-14, 2014

Dear Parents,
I hope that everyone had a great weekend. Fall is here and the weather changes from day to day. Please make sure that your child brings a sweater and a water bottle.

I would like to remind all parents to read all the special teachers' blogs, as well as the administration blog. Each blog includes important information about your child's learning and the school.

We have been invited to participate in the Mini Olympics for bilingual schools on Nov. 19, 20th ,and 21st. It will take place at the Villa Olimpica from 8-11: 30. Your child will be representing the school, and we have decided to wear a short and t-shirt with the school's logo. We will be sending a note on Monday, Nov. 10, 2014 so you can send L. 350.00 no later than Wednesday, Nov. 12, 2014. Make sure it comes in a sealed envelope and with your child's name.

This week your child will be inquiring into the following:

Language Arts

Working With Words: Students will be learning these words as well as reviewing older words through various chants and activities. The spelling challenge will be this Friday. It would benefit your child to review these words daily. You can help them by writing, chanting and defining these words.
 This week's words are: find, long, down, day, did, eat.

Reading- Students will continue exploring the world of SPIDERS.  
Later in the week we will begin the book MOUSE SOUP by Arnold Lobel. Students will describe people, places, things, and events with details to express their ideas and feelings clearly.

Writing- Students will use adjectives and with guidance and support demonstrate understanding of words.


Math – Students will continue with chapter 3 this week. They will use ten frames to make a ten as a strategy to find sums up to 20. Also, they will work with the associative property of addition to add three numbers.

Science- Students will continue observing weather and learning about its elements. If you have any weather books you would like to share please send them with your child and label them with your child’s name.
