Ms. Mikki’s Classroom News
September 22, 2017
September Learning Targets:
Math: I can count from 1-10 and beyond
Language: I can listen and respond to books and stories
Social/Emotional: I can listen while others are speaking
I can take care of my own belongings
We had another great week at school! I am amazed at how well they have adjusted to school routines. We continued to read more Pete The Cat books. This week we read Pete The Cat And His Four Groovy Buttons. This book helped us count, identify numbers 1-4, introduced subtraction, and helped us predict which number came next in the sequence. They really enjoy the Pete The Cat books!
The M/W class enjoyed a Day At The Farm exhibits presented by the high school FFA members. We learned information about each animal such as animal names (cows, pigs, horses, etc), animal breeds (dairy vs. beef cow), gender names (chickens: male- rooster, female = hen, etc), what they eat, what each animal provides to us (pigs= bacon, ham, etc), and more.

Heads up! In October I’ll be assessing “Personal Information”. This is something that we’ll need a lot of parent/home support on. Over the course of the month, I’ll be asking your child these things:
First and last name
Birthday (Day and month)
Mom and Dad’s name
A phone number
Address- I’ll be happy with a street name and City (ex: Mt. Carmel Rd, Clever)
Name two/three friends in class
