Lower Case Letters
Last week I began introducing proper formation of lower case letters. Parents, be on the lookout for a paper from me with diagrams of how we form all letters in our Handwriting program: Handwriting Without Tears. I'll try to send it out this week.
Field Trip Reminder
Even though the weather forecasts rain for Wednesday, we'll be going to Acadia National Park in the morning. Please be sure to dress your students in layers and water proof clothing and footwear.
Later this week, I'll begin assessments for Unit 2: Counting Quantities, Comparing Lengths. Next week, we'll begin Unit 3: Make a Shape, Fill a Hexagon. This will be the first of two geometry units we'll cover this year. Expect to see a new math newsletter in your child's folder early next week.
