This week in language arts we will be reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear. While reading this book we will discuss the colors and color words.  We will also begin guided reading groups. During these small group sessions we will be learning how to improve our reading skills as well as begin a routine to maintain throughout the rest of the school year. The word wall word for this week will be "see". Students will be expected to spell and read this word. In math, we will continue working on number sense 0-10. Through creating sets, practing handwriting and working on the computers we will accoplish a good understanding of these numbers. Homework will also begin this week. Homework will be five to ten minutes a night. It will consist of re-reading the book that we have read in our guided reading group as well as reading all of the word wall words. Homework should be signed and dated each night by an adult. Homework bags should be returned to school daily. There will be no homework on the weekends.
