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:
 
We will read many fun books about Valentine's Day. 

Writing:  This week, we will write a special Valentine story about what we love about OURSELVES. We will also continue working on narrative (stories about our lives) and opinion pieces. We are working hard on going back to reread our stories to make sure they make sense and make sure we have our conventions (period at the end, uppercase at the beginning, and proper spacing). 

Math: 
This week, we will play some fun math games with sweetheart candies as we get ready for Valentine's Day. We will use our sweethearts to measure, add, make patterns, and more! We are also learning all about number bonds - number bonds show us that addition and subtraction is all about understanding that two parts make a whole. Check out the Friday video on ParentSquare, where I will explain how to better help your child at home with these number bonds. 

Leadership: We will continue to ROAR and discuss what it means to have a growth mindset!
