Homework: October 28-November 1

Flashcards: Make flashcards for our new sight words (BOY, GIRL, HAS, NICE, WANT), letter teams (OY and OI), and word family (OP - hop, cop, top, etc)Study flashcards every day.

Phonemic Awareness:  Please see the Phonemic Awareness tab for ideas and tips on working with your child on these skills: Rhyming, Beginning/Middle/Ending Sounds, Syllables, Blending, Segmenting.

Reading: Read books from your book bag, read your fluency, read from your Book Box at home, read on RAZ-Kids, read on We Give Books. We want to give you plenty of resources and opportunities to READ, READ, READ.

Math: Continue working on number identification, numbers out of order, coins, patterns, sorting, ways to make 5, addition and subtraction facts through 5, story problems, one more and one less, etc. 

Writing: Write EVERY SINGLE DAY in your At-Home Journal. Practice writing your sight words and write stories with three sentences on the same topic.

Sharing: We are learning all about geometric shapes this week (cone, sphere, pyramid, cube, cylinder, prism). Instead of a sentence this week, we are asking each child to bring in an example of a real-life geometric shape to share with the class. Please send your geometric shape in a brown paper bag so that we may guess what shape it is. If you would like your geometric shape back, please let us know and write your name on the bag. If you would like to donate your geometric shape to the classroom, no need to write your name. 

Type To Learn: Please complete ONE LESSON a week. Of course you may do more, but the school suggests that each student complete one (or two!) lessons per week in order to complete 50 lessons by the end of the school year.
