Dear Parents/Guardians,
We had a short week, but it was busy! It was great speaking with everyone at Conferences. This week, we continued to work, identifying the story elements, the beginning, middle and end of a story. We were introduced to the red words “was” and worked on sounding out CVC words and writing sentences. We began working on our next narrative writing. We also reviewed the letter Ii. In Math, we continued our focus on numbers 6 to 10. In Social Studies, we discussed the purpose of a map and the parts.
Next week:
Reading: narrative writing, sequencing, sentence writing, Topic 2 Assessment
Word Works: letter “Jj”; red words “so” and “of” CVC/word and sentence dictation, red word spelling test (updated list sent home)
Math: Making 10
Be sure to check the snack calendar to see when your child’s snack day is. We have 21 students. We also have a peanut and blueberry allergy. Please send healthy snacks and water! Thanks!
Be sure your child has a coat and other warm items as we will continue to go outside for recess. Also, be sure to clean out your child’s folder and backpack each evening.
Reminders:
Each evening, your child should be working on letters and sounds and red word recognition, as well as number recognition and counting to 100.
