It's field trip week! Please remember the following things: booster seat, lunch, drink, cloth bag with handles for pumpkin shopping. Drivers, please be here at 10:15.
We will go to the LIBRARY on Mondays. Please send all AR and library books on Mondays.
This week we're working on: how to pray a rosary, Adam and Eve, creation, being part of God's family, tattling vs. reporting important stuff, possessive nouns, vowel sounds, Christopher Columbus, fire safety, subtraction, related facts in math.
I will be listening to the students pray the Hail Mary, Glory Be, and Sign of the Cross this week. Please make sure you're practicing those prayers at home.
The book order is coming home tonight and due on October 14th. You can order online or send a check and order form to school.
Every Tuesday is sight word assessment day. Keep practicing those words at home. When the students have a good base of words in their working memory, it makes their reading progress so much faster.
Thanks for all of your help at home. Don't forget to record night time reading on the reading log. Even if you read to them, write that down. Any time they hear new vocabulary or are exposed to stories it is good for them.
I am very pleased to share 127 AR passed book tests towards our goal of 1,000 so Mrs. Heiman will kiss a pig!
This week we have started working on learning about Adam and Eve and the garden of Eden, the short u sound, singular and plural nouns, contractions, subtraction, sound and light waves, maps and globes, and writing stories with time order words.
There's no school this week on Friday for the kids. The teachers are going to an in-service meeting.
Today the class was very excited about taking AR tests and working towards having at least 9 passed tests by October 20th. We have 93 AR passed book tests towards our goal of 1,000 so Mrs. Heiman will kiss a pig. If you have any time to come into the classroom to listen to students read let me know!
We also still have slots available for Scientist of the Week on March 9th, March 16th, April 6th, April 20th, April 27th, May 4th and May 11th. Let me know if your child would like one of these slots.
Have a great week!

I sent home earlier this week the permission for our October trip to the Dairy Farm on Friday, October 13th. Please look it over and return to let me know if you can help with driving or a snack. I have about half of them returned and will be contacting those who offered to drive soon!
We have been working hard on adding and subtracting in math that I have started sharing some of Greg Tang’s math games with the class. Greg Tang has an awesome website where the class can practice at home also or you can check to see how to play by watching a short video clip: https://tangmath.com/pages/how-to-play
So far we have played Numtanga and Snake!

Patriot Day is today. Kids are wearing jeans and a red, white, or blue shirt to show our love for our country. Please join me in praying for all of the families impacted by the 9/11 tragedy. Jesus, give comfort to all families who are sad and missing their loved ones. Grant eternal rest to all of the people who perished on September 11th and let your perpetual light shine upon them. Soften the hearts of all who are involved in terrorism of any kind.
Tuesday is the day that all trash bag fundraising forms and money are due.
This class has created a lofty goal to read 1,000 books as a grade level so that Mrs. Heiman, the principal, will kiss a pig. Mrs. Heiman explained that she is expecting to see 1,000 passed AR tests from first grade in order for this to happen. In our class alone that would be about 67 passed tests per child this year. I know it is a lot but I am willing to support the class in their goal. Currently, we have 25 passed tests as a class! Here’s to helping our students attain their goals!
