I hope you all had a nice relaxing break! It is always difficult to come back after a week off, but the students told me all of the wonderful things they did while they were not in school. It sounds like everyone had a lot of fun! J This week we are busy as usual. Please read to find out some of the topics we will be covering!
Reading & Writing: This week we will be finishing our unit on important American Citizens! We are going to learn all about Ruby Bridges and how she was a brave little girl!
I will be assessing your Childs reading level this week and next week. I hope to have these completed by the end of next week. You will be notified of their new level a.s.a.p.
Phonics & Spelling: The phonics skill for this week will focus on the “ay” and “ai” long a sounds. When figuring out whether a word has “ay” or “ai” you can listen to the word and see if you hear the long a in the middle or at the end. If you hear it in the middle you use “ai”, if you hear the long a at the end you use “ay”. For example, play & rain
Math: In math we will be finishing with chapter 7. We will continue counting on by ones and tens using a hundred chart. Students will be introduced to grouping objects by ones and tens. For example, if I have 53 buttons, I can circle 5 groups of tens and then add three more. Students will complete a study guide on Friday. We will have a chapter assessment on March 4th. Please be aware that we are skipping lesson 7.5 this chapter. DO NOT have your child complete this homework. Look at the homework sheet to see what pages need to be done each night.
Religion: We are beginning to learn about the seven sacraments. The first sacrament we will be learning is Baptism. Please send in, no more than 2 pictures of your child’s baptism! Pictures Due on Wednesday, 2/26.
