Today we read Where the Wild Things Are.  We had a funny discussion of some of the things your kiddos have done when they are being WILD things!  I heard about a lot of broken things...

We also read Chrysanthemum and discussed how the main characters feelings changed during the beginning, middle, and end of the story.  Chrysanthemum is a mouse that gets teased at school for having a long name.  We then counted the letters in our first names and graphed them.  We learned that seven letters was the most popular.  The kids also got to work in small group to rainbow write their names.  We were really focusing on writing our names with an uppercase letter to start and the rest lowercase.  We will continue to focus on this during our writing time next week.  Please be sure to practice at home!

During math we continued sorting objects.  We sorted transportation manipulatives by color, type of vehicle, and if the vehicle travels by land, water, or air.

We reviewed our dismissal procedures but if your child is anything like mine, they were checked out at about 11:00!  During dismissal I ask that your child give me or Mrs. Pemberton a high-five so we see that they are leaving safely.

In your child's backpack you will find their "Daily Wild Thing" assignment.  This is a way for us to get to know each other better and have some time for show and tell.  If you have any questions regarding this project please let me know.  Tomorrow you should be receiving our PTO's fund-raiser packet.  The goal is for each student to sell 10 tubs of cookie dough, YUMMY!!  There is a class incentive of an extra recess/popsicle party at stake!  I know the little monsters would LOVE that!

I am looking forward to seeing you all next Tuesday night for Parent Information Night!
