Homework: November 28-December 1

Flashcards: Study sight word and letter team flashcards DAILY! These are so important for your child's reading! New words for this week are: BY, OUR, WHO, THING, THINK and new letter teams are GE/GI and INK.
 
Reading: Book bag and Book box reading EVERYDAY!

Math: We want students to be practicing math at THEIR LEVEL. For some students, this means still counting practice, number flashcards, and number writing practice. For other students, counting money and simple addition is appropriate. YOU know your child best. Please make sure to practice a little bit of what your child needs for math practice every day. If you see a math paper that has come home with my writing on it or circled problems that your child is struggling with, please reinforce those worksheets at home!

Writing: A great idea would be to pick up a small journal and have your child write in it EVERYDAY, focusing on writing more than one sentence on the same topic with an uppercase at the beginning, finger spaces, proper punctuation, and details! Don't forget to practice writing our sight words of the week for our spelling and dictation test too!

Sharing: Sharing for the second trimester will now consist of writing TWO sentences each week. This week's sharing homework is to write TWO sentences about something you did over your Thanksgiving vacation.  Draw a picture to go with your sentences. Make sure you practice reading your sentence at home so you are prepared to read in front of the class. Sharing is due any day this week. Please see the "Attachment Library" page to download our Sharing Page - this is a great paper for sharing with a picture and writing space :)
