Miss Peter's Grade 1 and 2 News

OCTOBER, 2016
 
 
 
Dear Families,
September was a very busy month. We worked hard to learn the new rules and routines and get back into the swing of things! We learned patterns, sequencing, and started skip counting. We started journals, practiced sight words and got settled into our math and reading groups. We also have been studying the days of the week, months of the year and seasons and brainstorming about rules, responsibilities and the importance of respect. 
 
Coming Up...
In October we will continue to learn how to recognize and represent numbers in different ways as well as practice our sequence and skip counting. Now that our reading groups have been established we will be able to start our guided reading process during Daily 5. We will continue to practice our sight words and write in our journals. Stay tuned for more updates.
