Homework: January 19-23

Flashcards: Make flashcards for our new sight words (WOULD, COULD, SHOULD, WALK, TALK), and letter teams (ANG and ANK). 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 bags, read your fluency passage, book boxes, books on RAZ Kids, visit Smarty Ants, and books on We Give Books. We want to give you plenty of resources and opportunities to READ, READ, READ.

Math: Continue to discuss measurement and help your child to measure items at home. Reinforce addition and subtraction math facts through 5. Count the money in your "bank" each day. Tell addition and subtraction word problems to your children and have them explain to you how they got the answer.

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 have a very special sharing this week! Since we have been studying measurement in math, we would like each child to bring in something that they have measured at home. Be prepared to tell the class: what you are measuring with that item (example: length, capacity, weight, height, etc.), what you USED to measure the item (it can be a standard OR non-standard unit), and what the final measurement was. If you measured something that you CANNOT bring into the classroom, you may write a paper about your measuring. For example, "I measured the length of my bedroom using my hands and my bedroom was 36 hand-spans long."
