What are we learning about?
Reading- We are using reading strategies to help us decode words. One strategy to remind your child of is: “self correct.” Students need to think about if a word sounds right. Think …is that the way we say it? We also started a new author study on Jan Brett.
Phonics/ Grammar- Please review the phonics chart. We are learning about commas in a series this week. During phonics time we have also been practing penmanship.
Math–Chapter 5- Addition and Subtraction relationships. Ask your child: How can you use related facts to find a missing number? How can you use addition to check subtraction? How do you know if addition and subtraction facts are related?
Social Studies/Science- We are starting our unit : Holidays Around the World. We are learning about Israel and Germany this week.
Writing- Students will be reviewing all text types. This week it is Narrative.
