September 2017 Newsletter


Hello Turtle Parents,

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend and got to do something fun with the extra day off. Everything here at school is going very well! We are settling in nicely into our classroom and school. September is already off to a great start.  We cannot wait to see all we will be able to accomplish this month as well, as how much fun we are going to have.



Our first set of homework was sent out last week and should be turned in today. This is how our homework will work for the rest of the year. It will be sent home on Friday and be completed and turned back in by the following Friday. The reading log will be put in the binder at the beginning of each month, and turned in at the end of each month.


Water Bottles and Snack

Thank you so much for sending your student with a water bottle each day, it has been very helpful with keeping them hydrated. I also wanted to thank you for keeping up with the snack calendar and sending snack on your student’s day. They really do get excited when it is their snack day.


In literacy this month, we are talking about the jobs of an author and illustrator. The author is the person who writes the story and the illustrator is the person who creates the pictures. Our big theme is about homes. Our anchor text is Where Is Home Little Pip? And our supporting text is A House for Hermit Crab. Our class has really been enjoying both books. We are also working on letters and the sounds they make. When reading with your student at home you can help them to make connections between the pictures and words in the book. Talk about who the author and illustrator of the book is. All of these practices will help support what we are doing in class.



In math, we have been practicing counting to 5 the math way, which is starting on our left hand with our pinky finger being 1. We also have and will be continuing sorting and classifying objects. So far, we have talked about sorting by color, size, shape, and by how many we have. We just started talking about how changing our objects from being vertical to horizontal does not make a difference in the amount we have.


Clip Chart and 7 Habit Jars

I have attached a letter about the clip chart and how it works in our classroom. In addition to the clip chart, we have three jars in our classroom that are related to the 7 habits that our school and classroom are working on. When we are being leaders in one of the 7 habits a pompom goes into the jar. When one of the jars is full, we will have a Leader In Me party or fun activity.
