What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: ANY, MANY, BUT, WERE, PEOPLE.

Letter Team: 
We will revisit and focus on all of our "2 Vowels Go Walking" this week. The rule is "when two vowels go a-walking, the first one does the talking, by saying it's name!" You can help your child with this by making flashcards for AI, EA, OA, OE, and UI. We will work on decoding words with this rule - like RAIN, LEAF, GOAT, TOE, and FRUIT.

Reading: 
For the next two weeks, we will read books about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

Writing: We will practice writing letters, cards, lists, and step up to writing stories. 

Math: 


We started a new Daily Math Practice worksheet last week. Students are given 15 minutes to independently work on this sheet. We will be working on these together as a class every Monday through Thursday, and using these as an assessment on Fridays. The problems circled or corrected in blue are the ones your child missed in class or was not able to complete in the 15 minute time frame. Please look for these worksheets coming home in your homework folder. Take some time every day to reinforce and practice these concepts at home as homework - especially the blue ones! Thank you for your support!

Leadership: Our leadership trait this month is FLEXIBILITY. Our kindergarten definition for FLEXIBILITY is: to go with the flow and be willing to change or compromise without complaining.
