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.
Phonics/ Grammar- Please review these phonics patterns this week: unk in trunk, wa in wash, and a in adopt. Please look for them in your reading homework. In grammar we are practicing plurals- s and es.
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.
Social Studies/Science- Students are learning all about Bats. Ask them to tell you four facts about bats.
Writing- Students will be taking a writing test on Thursday or Friday. It is Informative Writing. Practice by having them write with these frames.
