Welcome October!

I cannot believe how quickly September has passed. Our first month of school has been incredibly busy! I am so proud of all of the students for learning our routines so quickly. They have gotten many compliments from other teachers in the building for their exceptional behavior. Great job boys and girls!

This month we have rapidly moved through a lot of academic skills. In math, the students have matched, sorted, subitized (determined "how many" without counting),and counted objects. In reading, we have learned the letters a-s. The students have learned the following sight words: I, am, the, little. We have studied the concepts of "character," "setting," and "sequencing."

September has been a wonderful month and I cannot wait to see what awaits us in October!
