    Daily Lessons

    Literacy: We use a terrific phonics program called Fundations. In class, students will work on letter identification, sounds, and letter formation. At home,they can practice by tracing letters with their fingers, starting at the top and going down. As they finish tracing the letter, they can practice saying the letter name, the keyword picture and then the sound.  For example, Tt, top, /t/.   Additionally, we will be learning 2-3 new trick words each week. These words are trick words that we can not sound out. In the coming weeks, I will be sending home fun ways to practice reviewing these words at home!



    Writing: Writer's Workshop is a designated time where students become “authors”. After each mini-lesson students will have independent writing time where they will choose their own topic for their writing and have an opportunity to practice skills and strategies taught in the mini lesson. By giving the students choices in their topics, the writing becomes authentic, engaging, and meaningful. During this independent writing time I will meet with individuals or small groups to conference and encourage their growth as authors. Students will learn to write, revise, edit, and publish stories throughout the school year.


    Math: Envision 2.0. At the beginning of each topic, we will send home a parent information home page along with our math vocabulary words.  You can keep these at home to use for review.  After each lesson, we will send home the corresponding homework page to complete at home.  These pages are meant to be done with help and returned the following day unless otherwise noted. 

    Social Studies & Science: Science and Social Studies will alternate thematic units. These units of study will be incorporated throughout our school day!
    Our wonderful Elms PTN will provide each child with an Elms folder that they will bring back and forth to school in their backpack. This folder will be used as a tool for us to communicate daily. Each day, your child will bring home this folder. If there is a need to send anything back to school it will be found in the "Return to School" side of the folder. Homework is one example of something that would be in the "Return to School" side. Any notes from home to school regarding dismissal, or any correspondence should be put in the folder on the " Return to School" side.  A good parent teacher relationship is essential for a successful school year. You are always welcome to contact me!
