Week of Oct. 29th

What are we learning about?

 

Reading- We use reading strategies when reading words on a page of a book. One strategy to remind your child of is: “Get your mouth ready for the first sound.” For example the word is …Monkey the child should say Mmm. This helps them to focus on reading left to right, and letter-by-letter.stella luna

Math–Chapter 4- We are starting a new chapter it’s subtraction strategies. One strategy is count backwards to find the answer. Use a number line to help. Practice counting backwards and forwards and don’t always start at one.
