We Are All Abuzz About…….

on August 25, 2013


Dear Parents,


I had a great first week of school and I hope that the children did, too.  It’s hard to believe how fast last week flew by. 


What’s New This Week:

·      Colors – we will continue to review color names in both Spanish and English.


·      School Rules – we will continue to learn classroom rules and procedures.


·      Behavior Chart – we will also learn about the rewards and consequences of choosing to follow/not follow the rules.


·      Sight words I and A.

·      This week we will have homework.

    I want to use the same methods at home that your are using with sight words and letter of the week. Are you writing each on an index card and placing it on a ring or in a case?
