This Week Class 1B
Thank you for sending in all of your Back to School Paperwork! Our class was at 100%! Yay US! We earned 2 Nut Cards for each student! Thanks to everyone who submitted a Scholastic Book order. They should arrive within 7 to 10 days.
Happy International Dot Day!
Dot Day is held every year on September 15th to celebrate and explore the powerful themes of The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds– bravery, creativity, and self expression. The Dot tells the story of a caring teacher who reaches a reluctant student in a remarkably creative way. In Peter’s book, the teacher dares a very resistant Vashti to “make her mark.” Vashti’s breakthrough begins with a simple dot on a piece of paper. Encouraged by her teacher she sets off on a journey of self-discovery, letting her creativity bloom and, ultimately, inspire others. The students (along Mrs. Mitcheltree and myself!) will be making their marks and their inspirational works of art will be hung in the hallway! Stop by for a visit one day after school and check them out!
We will begin our Student of the Week program. Each week a student will be able to share with the class more about themselves. This paperwork will go home with them on Friday to be returned on Monday. Every student will have a turn to be Student of the Week.
Paddington Bear will also be joining each student for a week long adventure with your family. A copybook will be sent home to journal his stay with you.
Language Arts: We will be covering the following this week:
The students will be assessed on their knowledge of the concepts covered in Chapter 1. We will begin to introduce addition with sums of 6 or less.
Religion: God continually invites us to grow and deepen our relationship with him and others. God gives each of us unique gifts and calls us to use our gifts to give human expression to God’s loving, forgiving care for every person. The children contrast human life with other forms of life and learn that they are made in God’s own image and likeness.
A new school year can bring an abundance of new information. I am here to help however I can. The school website is a great resource, especially for new families. https://www.stjaneschool.com
