Welcome to the Lucas Lodge! See you Tuesday!

Hello everyone!

I’m looking forward to a great year this year, and I hope you are, too.  We’ll be learning tons of stuff and work on becoming better, stronger readers.
In Math, we’ll start with regular addition and subtraction and then we’ll work our way up to bigger numbers, learning to add two- and three-digit numbers!  We’ll also learn about telling time, counting money and how to measure things.
In Reading, we’ll work on reading skills like making connections, asking questions, creating images in our minds when we read, what to do with words we don’t know and lots more.  Along the way, you’ll learn what words like “schema” and “metacognition” mean!  (Don’t worry, they’re big words, but you’ll learn what they mean and you can teach Moms and Dads and Grandmas and Grandpas.)
In Writing, we’ll work on writing stories about ourselves.  We’ll also get to write about a state of your choice.  We’ll write non-fiction books on things we are experts on.  We will write poems and friendly letters, too!
Our weekly specials schedule is:
Monday/Tuesday – Art (We have Art on our first day!)
Wednesday – Music
Thursday/Friday – Gym (please have clean gym shoes for use in gym)
*We don’t have our weekly library time yet.*
Parents and Grandparents, there are several ways you can keep up with what’s going on in our classroom.  First, the best way to contact me is by email.  I check it several times a day and will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.  We also have a classroom website (great way to follow what’s going on in our room—subscribe with your email address and get instant updates) and you can like our class page on Facebook.  For classroom management, I use a website called Class Dojo.  With this, you can sign up for alerts any time your student gets a positive or negative mark in class.  More details on Class Dojo will be coming home later this week.
