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: This week, I will assess students on all the math concepts we have learned so far, including numbers, shapes, measurement, fluency facts through 5, addition and subtraction, decomposing and composing numbers, and base ten place value. 


Leadership:  Our leadership trait this month is CREATIVITY. We are learning that creativity means using our imaginations to create, invent, and problem solve.
