Don't forget it's Picture Day on Tuesday - full uniform, including sweaters.  I have no control when our class is called although we should be one of the first classes. Please note - I cannot control what your child's hairstyle looks like once they back from recess (especially if we haven't been called). All students will go out for recess (barring rain). 

Enjoy the weekend!

Weekly Gospel sheets are due on Monday.  Please do not hand them in early as the message in them is for Sunday's Gospel. Please go over it with your child (for a few minutes at least) this weekend.

Picture Day is on Tuesday.

We have been reviewing letter sounds for the past few weeks.  We are almost done - that means we will begin our Phonics books very soon.  Phonics will be done in class and should not be sent home for homework yet.  If it is sent home, it is to complete work that has not been finished in class. 

Work that has been sent home thus far is work that is not being completed in class.  Understanding that children work at different speeds, it is important that your child understands that he/she needs to use his/her work time effectively.  Work shouldn't be sent home for homework if it can be completed in class, during class time.

Sight words will be sent home next week. Please look for those words in the homework folder next week.

Study area sheets are due next Wednesday, Sept. 27.

I sent an email home regarding our class email list.  Please let me know ASAP if your email is wrong so I can correct it and re-send it. Thanks!

Homework is starting to come home. Please be on the look out for duotangs in the Homework Folders. It is all work that has not been finished during class time.

I thought I blogged yesterday afternoon.  I did not.  Sorry!

Homework for today (if your child has it in his/her red folder)

  • Weekly Gospel duotangs (white) due tomorrow
  • colouring pictures based on letter sounds (i/j/k) + 2 words that start with that letter sound
  • Math numbers 3 and 4
  • Study Area - draw a picture of your study area and tell me why its a good choice - due Wednesday, Sept. 27
We talked about a good study area today - free of distractions, area to work, needed supplies. 

Students are asked to draw their study area and tell me where it is (kitchen table/island,  room etc.) and why it's a good one (close to mom/day so I can get help, it's quiet, etc.)
Please have your child sign the sheet and please initial the bottom of the page. 

Reminders - Sept. 26 is picture day
