Reading & Writing
This week we will continue with our new unit on Geography! The first week students will be learning about their place on a map. Throughout the month we will focus on our neighborhood, town, state, country, and continent. Students are also reading Dr. Seuss books and completing lots of fun crafts. You will see all our work at conferences next week. I am still in the process of assessing reading levels. Students have made so much progress since September. I am so proud!
Phonics & Spelling
The phonics skill for this week will focus on the “ow” and “oa” sounds. When figuring out whether a word has “oa” or “ow” you can listen to the word and see if you hear the long o in the middle or at the end. If you hear it in the middle you use “oa”, if you hear the long o at the end you use “ow”.
This week students will continue with chapter 8. We will continue to show groups of tens using connecting cubes. Students will understand that 10 ones creates 1 ten and each two digit number consists of tens and ones. Students will also practice grouping objects together to see how many tens and ones there are. Please continue to practice counting on by tens and ones with your child.
