Weekly Letter March 8th

Posted on March 8, 2021

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. I am still in the process of assessing reading levels. Students have made so much progress since September. I am so proud! J

Phonics & Spelling: This week our phonics pattern focuses on the long e sound. The long e sound can be ea or ee. Our words this week follow the ea pattern. Please continue to practice spelling words each night. There will be a spelling test on Friday!

Math: 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.

Religion: This week there will be a lesson 7 assessment. Books will come home today. This lesson begins on page 82 and ends on page 89. Please focus on the following key words when studying: Mass, parish, worship, saints, blessing and devotions.

Announcements & Reminders:

  • Please do not pack any candy for snack OR lunch
  • I will be assessing sight words soon. If your child has a paper in their green folder with highlighted words, please study them!
  • In the morning, please make sure your child’s water bottle is closed tightly. We’ve been noticing some water bottles leaking throughout the day!

Weekly Letter March 1st

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We have a busy week as usual in class 1-2. Please continue to read on to see what we will be learning this week…

Reading & Writing: This week we will begin our new unit, Geography. We will focus on our town, city, state, country, and continent. During the month of March, we will be celebrating Dr. Seuss and Women’s History Month. I will continue assessing reading levels this week. Once your child is assessed, you can see their new level by looking in their book baggies.

Phonics: 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: This week we will have a chapter test tomorrow (3/2). Study guides went home on Thursday. On Wednesday, we will begin chapter 8. We will practice how to show groups of tens using connecting cubes. Students will also 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.

Religion:  This week students will finish lesson 7. Today we talked about the different seasons of the Church Year. Students had the opportunity to talk about the seasons such as winter, spring, summer, and fall. We realized that there are certain activities that happen in each season. In the fall we go apple picking, but in the winter we build snowmen. We know what to expect in each season and the same goes for the seasons of the Church. We talked about Advent, Christmas, Lent, The Triduum, Easter, and Ordinary Time.  

Announcements & Reminders:

  • Friday is a half Day & Wacky Clothes Day
  • Volume 1 of our math classwork books will come home at some point this week. They are coming home because we finished with all the chapters. Please keep these books at home. We will be getting our volume 2 books in class very soon.

Weekly Letter February 22nd

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. We will also read about Abraham Lincoln and how he was a president who helped our country!

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: This week students will learn about comparative endings like –er and –est. We will practice using our spelling words appropriately in sentences. We use (er) when we are comparing 2 people, places, animals, or things. We use (est) to compare 3 or more things.

Math: In math we will be finishing with chapter 6. Students continue to practice using tally charts and picture graphs to answer questions with the phrases “how many more & how many fewer?”. Both of these mean SUBTRACTION. We will also be creating a class graph, with the question, “what is your favorite ice cream flavor?”

Religion: This week in religion we will be starting lesson 7: “How do we praise and thank God?” Students will focus on the key words: Mass, parish, worship, and saints.
