We have a busy week planned at the Alta School. Kindergartners will meet the school counselor (Nial Overby) Tuesday morning. She will be teaching "social skills" every Tuesday morning.
We will also be meeting Mr. Hoffman (our new PE teacher) Tuesday as well.
This week during READING we will be completing a unit on Chicka-chicka Boom Boom. Our unit will include Alphabet recognition and fun with letters. Be prepared to hear all about it. Our THEMEwork this week ties right in with TREES. We will be discussing trees through the seasons, drawing trees, and visiting ALTA school's 19 new trees that were planted last year. We will be LAUNCHING Writer's workshop this week too. If you clicked on Writer's workshop then you can read about our week in a nutshell. Everyday Math this week includes the following: introducing measurement comparisons through a partner activity, introduction to pattern blocks, introducing counting and one-to-one correspondence, counting down to zero.
Remember you are your child's first teacher!
