Check out what Big Hollow wants for school in this amazing project: PBIS Prizes and Products for Our Star Students!.
Big hollow Primary is using DonorsChoose.org to request things for the Primary School Star/PBIS Program. It's an online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need.
If you chip in to help her classroom (or any other one on the site), you'll get photos from the classroom and thank-you notes to see the impact you made.
Please pass this along to anyone you know who may want to help out.
In math, we have continued to work with addition. The students were introduced to the “number bond”. We practiced reading addition sentences using the students in our class. I sent home the Eureka Math Newsletters so you can see what we will be doing in the next couple of weeks. The kids are doing amazing job and having fun!
We continue to learn grammar and we are talking about sentence structure. We continue to talk about poems and poetry. I think they like the way I read the poems. I really enjoy reading them to the kids!
I am out of my snack supplies so please remember to send your child with one.
- We will learn about the letter V, Y & E
- We will continue with simple addition.
- Our new sight words will be: was & were

Have a fantastic weekend!
With the cooler weather please label coats, hats, gloves and such so clothing can be easily identified if they are lost or left on the bus. The extra clothing set is nice to have in case of accidents, spills, and if clothes get wet at recess especially during the snowy months. This is also a good time to practice zipping and tying.
Please send your child’s “Minion Binder” to school daily. I hope that parents will like it. This is a great way of communication but do not hesitate to email as this is also a good way to communicate.
If you have not sent in gym shoes, please do so. If you would please put you student’s initials on shoes that they come to school in as well that would be very helpful when they change shoes for P. E. class.
I will help your child to indicate their daily behavior in the Striped Binder every day. Eventually they will be able to do this by themselves J. Any time your child puts red, I will write it in the agenda book or you will receive a phone call specifically stating what occurred.
We do have a student with food allergies so if you could refrain from sending any nuts or snacks with nuts that would be greatly appreciated. Students may still bring items for lunch.
I encourage you to send in a water bottle for your child. It can be kept in his/her cubby and I have told the class that they may get up at any time to get a drink. They may also get a drink from the water fountain. Please write your student’s name on the bottle.
I will be posting weekly newsletters on our classroom website at: http://mrsohm.weebly.com/ and will add your preferred email address to my list so hopefully I can send it directly to your inbox for convenience.
Things that can be worked on at home:
Writing first name using PENCIL and only capitalize the first letter.
Using alphabet flashcards (easily made with index cards) to review capital and lowercase letters.
Using alphabet flash cards practice letter sounds.
Practice SIGHT WORDS
Practice numbers 0-20 using flashcards
Please teach your child to tie your their shoes.
Please teach your child to zip.
MY PARENTS ROCK!
