Crew News October 5, 2011

Reading
In reading we are learning all about the things we should think about when we are choosing a "just right" book. So far we have talked about how what books are "just right" for us will change as we grow and become better readers and how what is "just right" for one person might not be "just right" for another. We are now taking a look at some specific things that can help us choose a "just right" book such as the size of the print, how many words and lines there are on a page, if a book has pictures or not and if there are many words that we do not know yet. Choosing our own books is such an important skill but it can be challenging because there are so many things to think about when choosing a new book.

Homework
Reading ~ Read a good book or two.
Math ~ Go to the Resources page on our crew blog. Have your child show you how to do some of the counting by 2s or counting by 5s dot-to-dot puzzles.

Library
We will not have library tomorrow because Ms. Diana is going out on some field work with another crew. Your child can still return any books that they have out. All books will be due on the first day back after Fall Break.

Exciting Blog Posts Coming
Be sure to check out the blog tomorrow and Friday. We have a couple of exciting blog posts coming up before we go on Fall Break. Okay, I am very excited about them and I am hoping you will enjoy them, too. We have been working on them in class for the last few days which kind of explains the sort of ordinary (but informative) posts of the last few days.
