Getting in the Swing of Things

by Steve Krile

This Week

During problem of the day we worked on how many more. Our first grade friends continue to work on counting by 5’s and our seconds have started simple multiplication!

When working with your Krile kid on counting be sure you work from any number AND they can identify numbers at random.

By the end of first grade Krile kids should be telling time to the hour and half hour. Second grade friends to the five minute interval.. Read those clocks at home!!


The password for the website media section is krilekids.

Keep those snacks coming!! Kids are LOVING the fresh fruit!

The kids are doing a GREAT job unpacking each morning!! Way to build independence :-)

Friday’s are spirit day!  Until our Krile Kid shirts arrive keep wearing Logan spirit wear or yellow and black!

The link to order Logan wear is on the website. 

Book order due Monday, Oct 7th :-)

Reading And Writing

This week we met my favorite character of all time....FANCY NANCY!!. Her books are full of real life kid experiences with WONDERFUL vocabulary!!

In writer’s workshop we have started our own fancy adventures. We have characters such as Wiggly Waseem, Amazing Amelia, Awesome Aliyah and Charming Charles. Each adventure will contain seven fancy words we have learned from Nancy.

During reading workshop we read books about WILD Things, Who Lives in a Tree, a collection of barnyard animals and a HUGE dog.

Social Studies and Science

Fall, fall, fall is all over Kriletown. We made amazing scarecrows for the annex and discussed why farmers put them in the fields this time of year 

We discussed fog and added the new symbol to our weather graphs.
