EXTRA CREDIT ALERT!! Any student who makes one of these over the weekend gets an extra penny on Monday. These are called the Ten Frame Ababcus. You will need 20 beads, 10 of each color, two pipe cleaners, and an 8x10 foam paper cut in half. Students can use any color beads but clear and any color foam. This is another way we will be subatizing in the classroom.

Happy Sunday!  This week we will be reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.  This is one of my favorite books.  Here is a link to the song.

We have been practicing "Who Let The A Out" daily and the kids are very excited to show you.

 You can click on the link below to see the sound spelling cards we use in the classroom to help us learn the letters and sounds.  This is also a great thing to print out an have at home when students are writing. Have them try to sound out the letters in a word instead of spelling the words for them.  This helps them to become independent writers.

We have been reading The Kissing Hand.  Please watch this video with your child and have them retell the story to you.

What a great day!  I met ALL 26 of my students and parents!  I had a great time teaching "Who Let The A Out," and reading The Kissing Hand to the students.  What was your child's favorite thing about today?

Our lemonade social was a success!  It was so nice meeting everyone.  I hope you enjoyed the classroom.  The beach is my favorite place to be so why not bring the beach to Star Academy!  Thank you to everyone today for being so welcoming.  The parent support is amazing and I can't wait to get to know you more!
