  Please Note:

The school wide expectation for students is to read or be read to for at least 20 minutes a night.

What We’re Learning

  Our school this year will be emphasizing the Responsive Classroom, which is an emphasis on establishing rules and appropriate behavior using consistent language and techniques all day long.

 Goals, expectations and the “social curriculum” in the first few weeks of school are critical to the overall success of the entire year.  We are working on a sense of group, establishing rules/consequences, and guided discovery. 

Building a sense of group includes simple group activities that help the children get to know each other better.  Guided discovery is a method by which areas of the room or classroom materials are introduced slowly and deliberately to the whole class. 

We will also do a variety of activities and assessments that will allow individuals to show where they are academically.  This will allow for the teacher to better meet the needs of each student. 

What We’re Learning


Please note that the school wide expectation is for every student to do 20 minutes of reading.

Math:  

We will do a variety of activities that will involve concepts of addition/subtraction, odd/even, number patterns, reading a graph, and one-step word problems.


English Language Arts: We are reading a story called, “The Sneetches” by Dr. Seuss. We are doing activities as a whole class and next week we will work in small groups.   This story’s theme is segregation and intolerance. For a half an hour each day the students participate in RtI which targets reading skills.  The class enjoys being read aloud to and modeling fluency is essential in learning to read.  We also use our Reading Street textbooks and will be reading a story called, “Dear Juno”.
