The Trotta-Karpovich News 

Dear Parents,

 With a new schedule, classroom, routine, and expectations, the students are doing a nice job. Each week please be sure to read my newsletter for upcoming  events, themes and topics that will be covered over the next week. We started to rotate during center time and completed some fun activities.

 In writing we are working on building good writing habits, correct letter formation, punctuation, capitalization and finger space between words.

In math, we have been exploring and reviewing addition  concepts.  We have started chapter 1 in Go Math. The vocabulary words we will cover are: addition sentence, is equal to, plus, sum and add.  The math practice pages that were sent home should be  review and independent practice for your child.  You may keep the completed math pages at home. Please check the newsletter for the date of the math test.

Next week we will talk about families.  We will explore    fiction and non-fiction books about families. Students are using strategies to determine if a book is fiction or non-fiction. Please reinforce this at home during nightly reading.

Throughout September the students will be assessed on letter identification, letter sounds, sight word lists and reading comprehension.  We will start Words Their Way for our spelling program and this will not start until next week.

I have so much information to tell you about at Parentís night on Monday, September 29th. Please come to the first grade presentation on curriculum, common core standards, Words Their Way and expectations of first grade. Please contact me if you    cannot make Parentís Night.

Mrs. Reinisch, our school counselor came to talk to us about filling someoneís bucket by saying or doing something nice for a        friend. Mrs. Reinisch will visit our classroom once a month for a lesson. Please read the weekly newsletter for important information.

                                                                                                Have a fabulous weekend!

                                                                                                   Mrs. Trotta
