 Letter Expert
Letter experts this week will be Emma (letter Ii) and Jake (letter Cc). Our experts have been doing a great job helping us learn about the letters.  So far this year; Aa, Ff, Hh, Mm, Rr, Ss, and Tt (we add Ii and Cc this week).   Practicing these letter names and sounds is the first step to reading whole words!

My Body
Just a reminder that finished bodies are due Monday, September 18th.  Please make sure your child includes eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and fingers in their drawing so that we can label them in class.
                              
                           


FIELD TRIP
We are so excited to be visiting Tucson Village Farms on Thursday 9/21 from 8:45 – 1:30. Thank you to our chaperones; Joshua Kaplan, Lyndee Jones, Jayle Sinclair, and Monique Cortes.  All families are welcome to join us at Ft. Lowell Park from 11:45 to 1:00 for a lunch picnic.  Please provide food for your family.  I will send home a reminder in Boomerang Folders to make sure your child is prepared and ready for a great experience.                 


DISMISSAL
Dismissal is now going pretty smoothly.  Please let me know or call the office if there are any changes in how your child is going home each week.

I hope you are enjoying a great weekend!

Wiltbank Wednesday

Library books are due!  If your child has their library book please tuck it in their backpack so they can be returned first thing Thursday morning.  We have library at 10:00 so we want to give Mrs. Callahan time to check our books in before we arrive.  

GREAT NEWS -- since our class has shown responsibility with their books, we will be checking out 2 books this week!

CAN YOU HELP?
We will be stamping our class t-shirts next week and could use 2 adults each day to help out.  The time will be from 1:30 - 3:00 on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  Please let me know if you are available for one of these days.


Letter Experts
this week are "Aa" Wesley and "Hh" Azalea.  Friday Guessing Bags should have an item that starts with either Aa or Hh.  We are having a great time guessing the objects.

WELCOME TO MY BLOG!  

Snack Breaks
We usually have two snack breaks each day which includes recess filled with fresh air, exercise and fun!  Reminder . . . please no strawberries or tree nuts due to an extreme allergy of one of our students. 

Homework Feedback
After speaking with parents on Curriculum Night, I am scheduling homework to be more consistent and allow more time to practice reading and snap words.

Monday:  Rah-Rah Bag with new letter book and new snap words

Tuesday:  Rah-Rah Bag reading and snap words and math worksheet/game

Wednesday:  Rah-Rah Bag reading with new letter book and snap words

Thursday:  Rah-Rah Bag reading and snap words

Friday:  Poetry Journal Reading and Rah-Rah Bag practice

Homework Notes
Please keep the copied student books in Rah Rah Bags until I remove them and put in “at school” book bags.

Due to Labor Day Holiday this week’s math homework will be Wednesday and is called “color in what you roll”.  Students will need a die to complete the homework so please let me know if you don’t have one at home and I will be happy to send one in the Boomerang Folder pencil pocket.

Book Orders Are Due
Thanks to the parents who went on line and placed a book order.  I will be sending in the order on Wednesday, September 6th so please let me know if you still want to order something.
