Room 10 News



Dear Families,

Thank you all for coming to Back to School Night! I’m so glad that I have had the chance to meet you all and look forward to sharing more information with you about your child at September conferences.

This week and the weeks ahead we will continue to focus on building routines and rituals as well as developing our classroom community.

 Areas of focus for the week ahead:

 Phonics: alphabet review and letter sounds

 Literacy skills: concepts about print, a sentence begins with a capital and ends with a period, being able to share something about what we read (i.e. What is this poem mostly about?)

Writing: We are starting writing workshop on Monday! We will be working on narrative stories, specifically writing about a small moment from their own lives

Math: building routines and stamina during counting collections (we will begin enVision next week)

Reading: building stamina during read to self time and building good habits while reading such as: taking a sneak peek and making predictions, checking your predictions, rereading, retelling, and finding your favorite part

 Social Emotional Skills: working together, helping one another, filling each other buckets, solving problems respectfully
