Fun...Fun...Field Trip Fun...

This week in Reading Street we will be springing into a new and exciting adventure. The question of the week is, “What kind of adventure can you have in the city?” Our city adventure will provide us with new amazing words, a new song, and fun classroom extensions!

We will begin the week reviewing our three sight words. Our words for the week are: here, from, and go. The sight words will continue to become more difficult as we come to the end of third quarter and begin the fourth quarter. We greatly appreciate you for continuing to work at home with your child! We have seen a huge difference in the sight word assessments – so thank you for all of your help!

In writing this week, the children will continue to practice story writing! As mentioned last week, we had started to discuss ideas of topics or events that we could write a story about. The children shared many very creative ideas! Last week, it was very fun to see their creative minds kick into high gear with their stories! This week, each student will have their own book and they will be writing and illustrating their own story. While writing, they will not only be focusing on transferring their story to paper, but they will be using proper sentence structure (a capital letter at the beginning, two finger spaces, and punctuation at the end)!

In addition, we will go on our field trip on Thursday (B Class) and Friday (A Class).  We are excited about our trip this week.  I know the children will have a blast learning in a different way than in the classroom.  Please make sure your child is at school on time because we will be leaving promptly at 9:15!  If you are chaperoning, please arrive to school between 8:45 and 9:00.  We will be back in time for lunch; therefore, they can buy lunch in the cafeteria if they would like too.
