I can’t believe it is November! K1B students have been working very hard. We learned about Fire Safety last week! Ask your student to tell you all they learned. We have been practicing letter and member ID every day, as well as printing names. Tomorrow we will begin Livey Letters, which is a phonics program. Get ready for your child to share all the letter sounds with you! This is the start of sounding words out. We had a visit from Mrs. Nesti’s brother, and his partners from the BPD! What a nice surprise! We also had the Mass. State Police come by with the pink MSP car! Along with our partners at the BPD, we were able to present them with a check from our Tag day, for breast cancer research. Look at all our photos to see some of the fun thing we have been up to! I know I say it every year, but these kids are amazing!❤️

It was a very busy week!! We had lots of visitors on Wednesday, and K1B did a great job of showing them what an amazing group of K1ers we have in K1B.
We learned about bats and magnets! Some of the special words from the week were:
One of the books we read was titled "Oonga Boonga", by Frieda Wishinsky. The class loved this book! We usually read at least 2 books a day.
This week we will be learning about spiders.
Don't forget Monster Mash is Friday!! NO TICKETS ARE SOLD AT THE DOOR! It is a sellout very year

The children in K1B have been very busy. We have begun our OWLs program, Building Blocks math, and our Handwriting program. The children are enjoying our stories, and all the extra fun things we have going on. We will be starting a unit on Bats and Spiders!
During our morning meeting, we will be going over letter and number recognition, and adding a few as the children master them. At this point, we are going to concentrate on A-G, and the numbers 0-5. The best way to practice these with your child is through the use of flash cards. Please do not be concerned if your child does not know them yet, I promise you they will! We have also begun printing names. If you would like some name printing papers to do at home, drop me an email and we will send some home.
