This week in Fundations we are learning our lines ( skyline, plane line, grass line and the worm line).  We are learning how to sit properly when we write and how to hold a pencil correctly.  We are using dry erase markers and erasers and our dry erase writing tablets. All letters and letter sounds have been introduced.  We are also working on capital letter formation. We are working on our tapping strategy.  Your child can use this strategy to decode words..   In your child's notebook are the trick words(I, like,am, the, and, a, see,, to, come,my,me, with,some , are,) which we are reviewing.  The trick words"is, of, so, and where" will be added to your child's notebook this week.  Please practice these words by counting the number of letters, clapping the syllables, skywriting and if you wish for your child to write the word in their word notebook, the children may write them two times each. Please read the books in your child's reading bag.
