Week of January 7-11, 2019

Happy New Year! I will like to make a blog post weekly letting you know of the schedule, and anything that is new so look for that either Sunday night, or Monday morning. This week we are going to be renovating a few things in our folders. We are going to be changing the baggies into rings, so if one day this week your child doesn’t come home with a baggie of sight words that means we are in the process of changing them! 

Here is a list of some things that you can be working on at home in addition to the things in your folder. 
Language Arts: 
1.       Identify all uppercase and lowercase letters and sounds

2.      Read all 20 Sight words: I, can, the, we, see, a, like, to, and, go, you, do, my, are, he, with, is, little, she, was
3.      Write first and last name
4.      Tell how many syllables are in a variety of words
5.      When given a word they can say a word that rhymes with that given word
6.      When given a three-letter word, they can identify each sound in a three-letter word
7.      They can identify the first sound in a variety of words

1.      Count to 100
2.      Write to 20 
3.       Add and subtract with numbers less than five where the solution is less that 10

We are still working on getting the subscription list to work so you are able to subscribe to my blog, I have a few people helping me get that squared away. I will let you know as soon as it is fixed. Thank you for your patience. Also, thank you for all that you do. You have amazing kiddos, and it has been fun to watch them learn.

A Message From Our Librarian

What is our Global Community?

Each year in the Q1 library, we like to encourage students to share their family’s heritage during our Global Literacy week.  In year’s past we’ve done a Diversity Quilt, which showed family traditions & flags representing the family’s origins.  We’ve also done a “Peace” wall to show the different languages in which our diverse population of students would say the word Peace.  This year I would like to display on a map where our students come from.  Show them a visual of our “Global Community” here at Quest.  By doing this we would like to know what State or Country your student was born, or if your student would prefer, where their family originates from.  We will then put their name on a “sticky” arrow & place them on the map.  I think this will be a fun way to show how diverse our student population is here in West haven, Utah. 

For responding, your students name will also be entered into a drawing to win a small prize here in the library.  There will be one winner per class.

It really is fun to see where we all originate from & have the students start thinking a little more Globally.  Also possibly finding a kinship with students from the same areas of the world.   

            Thank you for participating! Here is the link to fill out your information.

Baggie Books

Image result for cartoon of a book

Hello all! We have started to send home baggie books, and we have already had some come back ruined, colored on, or things spilled on them. We explained to the kiddos that these books are to be treated just like a library book. Please help us at home to keep these as nice as possible.

We will be pulling the kids to read their books with Ms Carrie on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. So if you are passing those off at home one of those days will be when we check them at school. Keep reading with your kiddos, and remember to let them read their book and try not to give them too much help. If they are stuck on a word, persuade them to sound it out. 

Thank you for all that you do. Let me know if you have any questions.
