Mrs. Tracy Caputo « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

 

Dear Parents, families, and students,

                             Welcome September and maybe a little bit of cooler weather! Thank you to all for attending Open House. It was great to see everyone. If there was something that I did not cover that you were hoping I would, please contact me and I would be happy to discuss whatever it may be.

                             I have submitted our booth idea for Founder's Day (September 25th), and as soon as I hear back with approval, I will let you know what donations will be needed. If you did not sign up at Open House to volunteer at our booth, and you would like to, please contact me.

                             During Open House, I mentioned using Spellingcity.com as a way to practice the weekly spelling words. The following steps will help you navigate the site. First, on the home page, you want to click on "search" at the top of the page. Next, in the quick search type "Caputo." Then, scroll down to you come to Tracy Caputo and click on my name. You will then see a whole list of registered teachers. Find my name and click on it. Finally, locate the current unit, week, and story title and click on it. There will be two lists for every week. The "green" list is the original spelling list, and the "gold" list is the challenge list. Your child knows which list they are on. If you should have any problems accessing the lists, please let me know. Log on and enjoy! 

                            In reading this week, we will focus on the following skills:

                                                      * Comprehension Strategy: Ask and answer questions

                                                      * Comprehension Skill: Key details: use photos

                                                      * Vocabulary Strategy: Root words

                                                      * Grammar: Predicates (verbs)

                                                      * Phonics: short and long "a"

                                                      * Story Genre: Narrative nonfiction

                                                      * Anchor Story: Lola and Tiva: An Unlikely Friendship   

                                                                

                            Place value to 1,000, number names, different forms of numbers, counting on and back by 10 & 100, and number patterns will comprise the math lessons for the week. The children will have their third addition fact assessment on Wednesday. They are really doing a fantastic job with these. Please keep practicing them at home. If your child needs additional practice themathworksheet.com site is an excellent resource.

                            We are scheduled to finish up our unit on maps about midweek. If you could please send in an old t-shirt that your child could wear over thier school shirt by Thursday that would be great. If I have any parents that are available Thursday from 10:30-11:15, please let me know. I will certainly need some extra hands to help with the first stage of making their paper mache globes. THis has been a favorite class project, I can't wait to see how this group responds!

                           I wish everyone a happy work week. Please feel free to contact me anytime with your concerns. Don't forget to send in those box tops. We are also in need of items for our treasure box. If you are able to make a donation, it would be greatly appreciated!

 

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

Love,

Mrs. Caputo
