Balta’s Bulletin

September 22, 2017


Reading-Next week we will be reading the story Gus Takes the Train.  Our skills focus on reading words with short /u/, consonants /qu/ and /z/, synonyms, adjectives, and writing a class story.


Math-We will continue to work on subtraction skills next week. 


Social Studies-We will be talking about Johnny Appleseed next week for Social Studies.  Please send in an apple with your child on Tuesday, September 26th.  It can be any color.  We will do some fun activities all week while we learn facts about Johnny Appleseed.


Star Reports-Star reports went home today.  The reading test was NOT read to the kids like in kindergarten.  The math test did have audio.  The reading portion was pretty difficult.  Our main goal is to see growth as we progress throughout the year.  Please keep that in mind when looking at your child’s scores.  If you have any questions, please ask.  I’d be happy to discuss the reports with you.


Eagle’s Nest-We will make our first visit to the Eagle’s Nest on Wednesday.  It is super exciting.
