Reading Corner News

Reading and listening to your child read are two of the most important things you can do to create a lifelong love of reading.  Parents who incorporate reading into their daily routine are modeling the importance of reading in everyday life.  Below are suggestions on how you can incorporate reading into your day…

  1. Storytime Surprise!  You don’t have to wait until bedtime to read together.  Surprising your child with a read-aloud at any time during the day models the importance and the joy that can come from reading books.
  2. Buddy Reading. Create opportunities for your child to read with another sibling or friend. Make it fun and not just another “homework assignment” for school.
  3. Library Books.  Ask your child to show you the books he/she checked out from the school or public library.  Showing an interest in their book excites children and may spark enthusiasm in reading the book to you.

Kitchen Fun! Most families spend an enormous amount of time in the kitchen after school.  Engage your child by showing and reading special recipes, ask them to hand you different ingredients so they hear new vocabulary words, go on “Word Hunts” where children look for words that have their word study pattern for the week.

Also this summer Mr. Scott was also pictured on the YMCA’s website for volunteering his time & helping out at the bright beginnings back to school event. We appreciate Mr. Scott for always having a positive attitude, helping others & being an amazing teacher to all of his little students! Thank You Mr. Scott!
*** Special thank you to Liberty Lanes for donating 2 free games of bowling, Chipotle donating a gift card, and we hope you enjoy all your other Teacher gifts from the PTA! ***

Pre-K takes on Problem Solving!

Last week to conclude their unit on Humpty Dumpty with a STEM project. The students in Mr. Scott’s Pre-K class created ‘beds’ for Humpty to fall into so he could avoid cracking.  They decorated his bed (tissue box) and then added a number of items (tissue paper, cotton balls, bubble wrap, handkerchiefs, etc.)  Once they thought their bed was soft enough, they allowed Humpty to fall in.  If he was safe, then their bed was soft enough.  If he received any cracks, they knew they had to add more items to make sure it was soft enough.
The children did a great job using their burgeoning critical thinking skills!
