Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend enjoying the beautiful September weather. Last week, we began our bee GLAD unit. GLAD is our science/social studies lessons. We started learning about the honeybee. Ask your child for one fact they learned about the honeybee! This week, we will continue learning about the life cycle of the honeybee and we will start exploring about the killer bee. In the homework packet this week, there is a GLAD assignment. We will be reading the story of “Mr. Bumble” in class today. For their homework, they will need to re-tell the story and draw a picture of their favorite part. Retelling stories is a strategy we are working on to help us read books and work on comprehension or understanding what we are reading. If you have any questions please let me know!
A few reminders for this week:
- Please bring in an extra pair of P.E. shoes for your child. These shoes will be kept at school. If you are unable to provide an extra pair, please have your child wear appropriate footwear on our P.E. days. We have P.E. on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
- We are switching to our new Gmail accounts starting this week! You can now reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Emails sent to my old account will be forwarded. Thank you for your grace during this transition time!
- Scholastic book orders are due this Friday (9/20). Please use our class code online (V77V9) to help us earn free books for our classroom!
