Mrs. Hudson’s Classroom Newsletter September 28, 2015 Dates to Remember Identakid:9/29 What We’re Learning Letterland: We will be learning about the powers of Magic e to make the Vowel Man appear and say his name. Magic e has the ability to shoot its sparks over one consonant and make that vowel change into a Vowel Man to say his name. For example, let’s look at the word shin. The i says its short sound, which is Impy Ink’s sound. If you add Magic e to the end of the word shin, it will turn into the word shine. The silent Magic e can jump over the n and make Impy Ink turn into Mr. I. Mr. I says his name. Reading: We will read Iris and Walter. We will focus on character traits and structure of the story. Math: Read/write numbers 0-1000, skp counting, place value:1’s,10’s and 100’s.

If you haven’t bought your child a magazine box, please do so. We need a place to put several books and activities to go with our books throughout the year. Classroom News IMPORTANT: Money for field trip can be turned in. I would love a donation of old books laying around your house that your child doesn’t read anymore. Your child is welcome to bring in a pillow for read to self time. They have to be small enough where they can sit on them and carry them.
