A Week in Review:
We are loving having the opportunity to check out books from the SFX library! We are activating all of our super reading powers to read about the topics we love the most. The super reading powers we are utilizing each day include: Pointer Power, Reread Power, Picture Power, Sound Power, Snap Word Power and Persistence Power.
We are turning our classrooms into book factories, writing as many books as we can about the people, places, and things we love the most so we can fill the shelves of our libraries with the topics we love the most. We are working to study sentence structure and apply it to our own writing. We are also working to find ways to celebrate our writing progress by sharing favorite parts and detailed drawings with our writing partners.
This week, we will move into our non-standard measurement unit. This hands-on unit will allow our students to explore the concept of measuring length, height and weight using Unifix cubes, popsicle sticks, paper clips and more. Our students will continue to develop their number pair knowledge by participating in math “by myself” and math “with someone,” learning stations.
This past week, we’ve been learning about various character traits we can continue to develop as young Crusaders. Gratitude, generosity, honesty and kindness have been the character traits leading our daily discussions with our Fun Run representatives. Our students are working hard to demonstrate these character traits in everything they do at SFX!
Early Childhood Christmas Program: Mark your calendar for our Early Childhood Christmas Program on Monday, December 16th at 10AM in the church!
Lavelle Mass Date: Due to the date on the Early Childhood Christmas Program, Miss Lavelle’s Kindergarten mass date has been changed from Tuesday, December 17th to Tuesday, February 4th.
Winter Gear: Please consider sending your child’s snow pants to school each day in a reusable shopping bag (small or medium) for easy transportation to and from school. Please also note that many students are coming in with the same boots, so you may want to consider labeling the inside of your child’s boots so there are no mix-ups.
Fun Run: The SFX Fun Run will be held this Thursday in our SFX gym. Students are invited to dress down in SFX spirit wear for this exciting event!
