Mrs. Tracy Caputo « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

 

Dear Parents, families, and students,

                                    What a great week we had. I have been truly blessed with an awesome group of kids. I hope everyone took advantage of the long weekend and enjoyed themselves. I know I sure did! Hopefully the children were able to rest up a little because we are in for a busy week.   

                                    Tuesday will be the first Buffalo P.R.I.D.E. meeting of the year. Please make note that this meeting will be held at the Savannah Center not the middle school. On Thursday, the children will have their school picture taken. Order forms were sent home last week. Uniforms are required along with a wonderful bright smile! That evening, Open House will be held from 6-7:30. This is an evening to learn more about what your child will be learning throughout the year, my classroom discipline policy, grading, homework, daily schedule, plus several other tidbits of information. I hope to see you there! Both opportunities are a great way to begin earning those important informational PI hours. .

                                     Our booth for Founder's Day has been approved. We will be hosting the Ring-A-Juice booth with Miss Branfoot's class. I sent home a sign-up sheet last week. Thanks to those that have volunteered to work. If you have not returned the form, no worries. I will have a sign-up sheet at Open House. In order for our booth to be a success, I am asking each child to donate 2-3 packages of juice boxes. Please have them turned in by Wednesday, September 10th. Do not forget to include your receipt for PI credit. If any of you have a canopy tent that we may use for the evening, please contact me. 

                                   The following skills will be addressed this week in reading:

                                                *Comprehension Strategy: Asking and Answering questions

                                                * Comprehension Skill: Key Details: using photos 

                                                * Grammar: Predicates and reviewing subjects

                                                * Vocabulary: Root Words

                                                * Phonics: Short and Long "a" (a_e)

                                     Please remember that it is your child's responsibility to practice their spelling words at home. They do get to practice in a center, but that might not be enough for them. I sent home directions on how to access Spelling City. The words are listed by the weekly story. This week's story is titled "Lola and Tiva: An Unlikely Friendship."

                                   Hundreds, tens, and ones, place value to 1,000, number names, and different forms of numbers will comprise the math lessons for the week.  Another fact assessment will be given on Wednesday. If your child is in need of extra practice, please visit www.themathfactcafe.com or www.themathworksheet.com.

                                   The globes are just about finished. They should be coming home at the end of the week. This week we are shifting to science and learning to work like a scientist.    

                                     I will have my September newsletter posted to my web page on Tuesday. Please take a moment and read over it to see what will be happening this month. Have a wonderful week!

Love,

Mrs. Caputo
