Fall Focus We are so very excited to return for the 2018-2019 school year.  This year will be filled with lots of fun and learning.  Fall's focus is All About Me.  Students will get the opportunity to learn about each other by participating in activities such as name study centers, child of the day, and all about me boards.  We are so excited to learn about each and every student in the classroom during the next few weeks!


In reading, we are learning to use the pictures to read the story and use them as clues to determine words.  In writing, we are beginning our small moments story about our trip to Demarest Farms.


In math, we are learning about numbers and exploring math manipulatives. Students are given the opportunity to explore math concepts using all types of materials such as:  unifix cubes, pattern blocks, sand and measuring cups, and sorting buttons.  We have also read some very fun and interesting books about counting and used these as a resource to guide math discussions.

Social Studies

We are learning about the community.  We are identifying community helpers and the roles they play.  We are also discussing the classroom as a community. 

Important Dates:

September 20th- Apple Picking Trip to Demarest Farms
September 25th- Curriculum Night
October 8th- Columbus Day (no school)

Classroom Reminders

Every student needs to bring in their classroom folder each day. This folder is important because each day students will take home their work and bring home notices about school, field trips, and classroom happenings.

On Mondayand Wednesday, students need to wear or pack sneakers for Physical Education.
