Class News For The Week of April 30 - May 4

Please make sure that your child practices their letter ring, the words in the word notebook and reads the books in their reading bag.  Please do not place your child's library book in their reading bag. Please make sure that your child's letter ring , notebook , and books are in your child's bag.

This week in our Journey's Reading Series our essential question is "How do animals colors help them survive?" We are daily blending , segmenting and substituting different beginning  sounds in a given word to make new words.  The new trick words ( away, have , and no)  have been added to your child's word notebook

This week in Fundations we are learning about recognizing long and short vowels in words, we are using our tapping strategy, as well as learning about alphabetical order.  We are also doing dictation where I will dictate a word and your child needs to write it down.  I am looking for proper spelling of the words as well as making sure that your child is placing their letters properly on the lines. We are also building given words with our magnetic letters.

In Math - We are working on Chapter 8 The Numbers 20 and Beyond
