September 2-5

Flashcards: Make flashcards for our new sight words (I, LIKE, MY), letter teams (SH and ER), and word family (ip - rip, sip, flip, dip). Study these flashcards (and those from previous weeks) every day. It may be a good idea to keep a bunch of index cards on a binder ring or in a box and you can add the new flashcards to that every week. 

Reading: Read to your child everyday! Have your child look for sight words and letter teams within the books you are reading. Have your child read to you.  Read all of the paper books that are now in your child’s book box, read on Raz-kids, and work on Smarty Ants Reading Program.  See the links on the News Tab.  You can download the poems and fluency passage of the week on gooru for your student to keep in their book box at home for additional familiar reading material.

Math: Practice counting 1-30 or higher, identify numbers out of order, number writing practice, sort items by color and size, and practice identifying, naming and drawing shapes. You will find several 2D and 3D shape resouces on gooru.  If your child is struggling with numbers, make number flashcards!  You can find all of these math skills and many more on IXL Math.  See the link on the News page.

Writing: Practice writing your name with an uppercase only at the beginning. Practice writing ABC's uppercase and lowercase (Aa, Bb, Cc). Also practice writing your sight words of the week and sight word dictation sentences for our spelling test on Friday.

Sharing: This week, we are learning about our senses. Please write one sentence about your favorite sense and how you use it. (Example: I like my nose because I can smell cookies with my nose.) Draw a picture to go with your sentence. Make sure you practice reading your sentence at home so you are prepared to read in front of the class. Sharing is due Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday of this week. Note: If you visit the following link (Sharing Paper), you'll find a great printable sharing page with a spot for writing and for a picture! Feel free to print off a bunch of these pages to use for sharing each week :) The Sharing Paper link can also be found on the Fun Learning Links tab.
