Homework: September 9-13

Flashcards: Please make flashcards for our sight words (YOU, AND, IT, FRIEND), our letter team of the week (WH) and our word family (AT - bat, cat, mat, pat, etc.)


Phonemic Awareness:  Keep working with your child on skills such as blending, segmenting, rhyming, syllables, and sound switch. We went over many of these skills at our Parent Workshop. 


Reading: Reading at home is SO IMPORTANT! My hope is that you are reading TO your child every night and discussing the stories you read. When reading with your child, have them point out the front cover, back cover, spine, title, author, illustrator, and title page. My hope is that your child is also playing on Smarty Ants for 10-15 minutes at least a few times a week. Our class username is: JCBESS@INLANDLEADERS.COM and our password is: READ. Another part of reading homework can be RAZ-KIDS. You can also find the link for RAZ-KIDS on the right side tab of our website. The teacher username is: JBESS1 and your child's password is: ABC. On Friday, your child brought home some of their little books we have been reading in class. These little books can live in your special book box that you made together. Practice reading these each night, having your child point to each word, get their mouth ready for the first sound, and look at the picture to help them. 


Writing: Keep writing, writing, writing! Write your name (uppercase only at the beginning), write your sight words of the week, practice writing your ABCs, write short sentences, write in the tub with bathtub paint, write words in daddy's shaving cream all over the bathroom mirror - have fun and be creative! Remember, we learn to write by WRITING! 


Math: The students have been working hard on math goals - Our math goals in class so far include Counting to 30, Counting to 50 or Counting to 100 (depending on where the student is at), writing numbers to 20, identifying numbers out of order to 30, and recognizing and describing shapes. Please work at home on these skills. 

This week, we will continue to learn 3D shapes and we will discuss positional words in relation to our shapes. For example:  the sphere is behind the fence, the cube is above the lamp.  Students have an easier time with this when the positional word is given - (Draw a circle next to the tree) but when students need to describe the position themselves it becomes much more difficult.  Practice having your child tell you where things are using the following positional words:

  1. *in front of
  2. *behind
  3. *between
  4. *next to
  5. *above
  6. *below
  7. *beside
  8. *left
  9. *right

Have your child play Dreambox on your computer or tablet every day. Our school code is X2we/inlandlcs and our class code is 83093.
