Week Of January 21st

Posted on Jan 22, 2019

On Friday, we read a story about Dr. Martin Luther King.  We then discussed our Goals and Dreams for 2019.

 

Spelling:  Starting this week, Spelling words have increased from 6 to 10 spelling words they will be tested on.  We practice printing and reviewing our list daily throughout the week.  We practice printing them 3x each, in spelling sentences, on dry erase boards, in the writing center by stamping them or using magnetic letters to spell them and playing sparkle or a spelling bee.

Reading:  We begin a new Unit this week.   One of the concepts that will be  Introduced is ABC Order, words end with “ED” & magic e Long A.  We will be working together on ABC Order the next couple of weeks.

Also, a homework sheet will be handed out on Mondays. Please have your child complete the assignment.  It will be Due on Thursdays.  They will have a few days to complete the sheet if needed. 

Math- We continue to use extra math to practice our math facts.  Each day that we did mad minute math, I did notice an improvement with the students recalling their math facts.  This is another way for them to challenge themselves to increase their math facts as the weeks go on.  We talked about, it is a challenge for yourself, not a race against the class. 

Silent Reading- “A Good Fit Book”  We have been focusing on picking a “Good Fit Book” & reading it daily for 5-6 minutes during Silent Reading.  I am so proud of the independent readers they are becoming.  I have noticed some children cannot keep their nose out of their book.  This is awesome!! The more they read the more they know.  Reading & Writing do go hand and hand!!
