Shapes

“Shaping Up”
We are learning the names and features of the four main shapes – circles, squares, triangles, rectangles (and more to come!). Please point out shapes with your student around the house, when driving in the car, etc.  One of their favorite references I make is that a rectangle looks like a door! There are shapes all around us and giving students concrete examples at home helps them to remember the names of the shapes.

In small group, we traced and colored shapes, created a face made of shapes and sponge painted shapes. During work time (centers), we got the choice of playing in housekeeping, table toys, building blocks and animals, trucks and doll houses. This is so much fun, and we look forward to opening more work centers!
We continue to reinforce class rules, procedures and expectations. We are filling a classroom bubble gum jar and each students put a bubble gum in when they are seen following directions!

**ALL DAILY EARLY START Parent Pick Ups will be held in the Gym each afternoon.  We are not using the alphabetical system.

**Our school fundraiser should be coming home next week! Stay tuned.

**We collect Box Tops for Education!

  1. We issued textbooks today. Please see me if you were absent!
  2. Character Terms Homework
    1. Let’s think about the character terms we can apply to George Bergeron:
      1. George Bergeron is a flat character because readers only know that he is kind and intelligent. He is a static character because he does not change in the story.
      2. George Bergeron is not a protagonist or antagonist because he does not move the action forward or work against the action. He is not a stock character because he does not act like the stock “father” character.
    2. Assignment: Character Terms –
      1. For each of the following characters, explain the character terms which can be applied: (two sentences each)
        1. Mama Johnson (pg 50)
        2. John Thomas (pg 50)
        3. Dee (Wangero) (pg 50)
        4. Maggie (pg 50)
        5. Harrison Bergeron (pg 38)
    3. “The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant.” – Page 31 in the textbook
    4. Short Story Class work – Answer the following questions in complete sentences:
      1. Where is the story set?
      2. What is the age difference between the narrator and Sheila?
      3. What activities does the narrator enjoy?
      4. What is the conflict?
      5. When does the climax occur?
      6. What part of the plot happens when the narrator cuts the fishing line?
      7. What lesson does the narrator learn from his experience?
      8. What character terms apply to Sheila?
      9. What character terms apply to the narrator?
      10. What character terms apply to Eric Caswell?
    5. Steps to a Theme notes:
      1. A theme is an insight about life or human nature which gives a story meaning.
      2. Follow these steps for finding a theme:
        1. How does a main character change?
        2. How is the conflict resolved?
        3. What is the significance of the title?

September 18

This week we will focus on shapes. We will trace shapes and make pictures with them. You can ask your child to find things that are squares, rectangles, circles, triangles, and ovals at home. Have them tell the characteristics of the shapes as well (# of sides, round, etc.) and how they are different (a rectangle has two long sides and two short sides, a square has sides all the same length). We are also working on recognizing the first letter in our names.

Notes:
*If your daughter wears a dress or skirt to school, please have her wear shorts under the dress or skirt.
*Socks and shoes are best for playing on the playground.
*Please return binders and bus tags each day.
*Please label all things that your child brings to school.
*Have your child practice cutting at home. Let him/her cut out pictures from old magazines or cut out shapes that you draw on paper. Practice the correct way to hold scissors.
*Have your child practice writing his/her name.
