Dear Room 114 Families,                                                                               September 17, 2018


It was very nice to meet many of you at open house.  Thank you to all the families that provided snack!

Note for the week:

  • Please remember to have your child wear gym shoes on Monday and Thursday
  • The year’s first PTO meeting is scheduled for September 25th beginning at 5 pm.
  • School begins promptly at 8:45 am and ends at 3:45 pm. If you anticipate being late, please call the school.

Please remember to meet your child on our class number at dismissal time to avoid congestion around the school doors. Please remind your child to say good-bye before leaving. I .will walk the students out beginning at 3:40 pm. Any students who remain at 3:45 pm will be escorted to room 306.

  • Please return all forms that have been sent home: emergency contact, student information and lunch form.
  • If you are interested in volunteering in the classroom please email me. I am looking for volunteers that can commit to a regular schedule.  Please also consider volunteering in the lunchroom and during lunch recess. If you intend on volunteering, you need to fill out a volunteer packet prior to volunteering. I also need volunteers to sharpen pencils and a volunteer to wash classroom tables after school.  If you cannot commit to a weekly volunteer time, you can also reach out about reading books to the class.
  • Children are permitted to have “pop top” water bottles in the classroom.
  • Please pay the $85 student fee


In Phonics, we will work on recognizing rhymes, building words using the alphabet chart, hearing sounds in sequence and saying words slowly to predict letter sequence. We will focus on the short sound of /i/.

Vocabulary=       enemy, recipe, squint, mumble

Sight Words=        is, you, that, it, he


This week we will continue to read a collection of books about friendship and being unique. We will read the books “How to Lose All Your Friends”, “Recess Queen”, and “Enemy Pie”.


We will continue to write narratives in Writing Workshop. We will work on telling the stories of our lives using illustrations and focusing on small moment rather than an entire day.


In Math, we will learn all about tally marks, collecting data and writing number stories.  We will also learn more about appropriate use of math tools.


In Science, we will begin our unit on space systems, focusing on the sun, moon and stars.  We will continue out unit on families.  A huge thank you to all the families that completed the Friday letter.  The students loved seeing what their families wrote to them.  The family letter is a great way to connect home and school.  The students especially loved that their family had Friday homework and they did not!

Have a great week!
