Letter of the Week: Ll
Sight Word: go, of, yes, no, look

Please continue to practice recognizing and writing: sight words, ABC's, & letter sounds. We will continue working on these skills in class. In addition, we will continue identifying beginning sounds, blending/segmenting and rhyming.
Dress Code: Don't forget the fall/winter dress code means no more shorts. Boots are not allowed. Also, the only sweatshirts that may be worn on campus are the OLM sweatshirts. Jackets may be any color but can only be worn during recess. Please refer to the handbook if you have any questions.
Hair: Boys--hair must be above the ears, eyebrows and collar. Girls--only Black, brown, white or OLM hair clips (etc.) may be worn (no pink, purple, aqua, etc., hair ties, clips or rubber bands).
Remember to continue saving and turning in your receipts from the Merced Mall (Target and Sears included). You can turn them in at the Customer Service Booth, or the school office.
Thanksgiving Snack: It is tradition here at OLM for the kindergarten (Native Americans) to share a Thanksgiving snack for the first graders (Pilgrims). We will have a small Thanksgiving snack with Mrs. Scheurich's first grade class. I am asking each child to bring an adult sized white t-shirt (due this Friday 11/4) to make our costumes. We will be coloring them so a gently used shirt if acceptable.
