Today packets will come home for the Deer Run Run-A-Thon. This is the PTO's biggest fundraiser of the year. The Run is on October 5.
Please return your child's COSI permission slip as soon as possible. It came home on pink paper the week. We now have 4 chaperones to go with our class. Thank you! We still need one more so if anyone is interested in going with us, please let me know. :)
Start With Hello Week
Next week we are excited to kick off our Start With Hello program. The program focuses on preventing social isolation and helps students understand ways they can help build a culture of inclusion. We are excited to work with the Dublin Teacher’s Academy students at Emerald Campus. They will be joining us next week to teach students all about how to make sure everyone feels included and valued. We will be kicking off the week with a school wide Town Hall meeting so we would like to encourage all of our students to wear their DRE t-shirts or anything green on Monday!
Next week, we will be learning about what an apple tree needs to grow in the enviornment (room to grow, temperature, light, water, air, nutrients and time (growing season). We will also learn about Johnny Appleseed and his contribution as a citizen. Please send an apple to school on Wednesday for science and math activities. Please do not cut the apple. We will use the apples for our lessons, then I will wash them and each child may eat his/her apple for a snack.
Reading & Writing Workshop
Next week, we will be using mentor texts to model our narrative writing. In reading, we will be using illustrations and details to recognize characters, setting & events. Our new "no excuse" words will be: about, one, some, friend, what, apple, once, upon.
In math, we will be learning the strategies doubles and doubles +1 to solve addition problems.
