Reading: This week we will continue to practice the Three Ways to Read a Book as well as identifying the components of narrative literature and narrative writing. Your child can read a book by: 1. Reading the pictures, 2. Reading the words, 3. Retelling a familiar story. We will continue to build independence during Daily 5. We will practice Read to Self and Work on Writing, and Word Work! We are up to 9 minutes of stamina where we are working independently on our Daily 5 choice!!! This week we will practice counting the number of syllables (word parts) in words as well as identifying the setting of the narrative story. We will also begin segmenting c-v-c words and and blending the sounds together. (ex. cat/ c-a-t/cat)
We will learn the letters Nn, and Ii and the sight words I, you. Please practice writing these letters at home. Below is an example of how to write the letters.

Math: We will work on counting to 30 and recognizing numbers and their quantities 1 to 7. This week we will practice writing the numbers 1-6 using dice! We will focus on the number 7. We will also talk about basic 2D shapes. We will continue to practice recognizing quantities up to 5 using a 5 frame! We will also practice graphing data!
Science: We will continue learning about the 5 senses as we begin to look at the forces of Push and Pull. These are see, hear, smell, taste, touch.
Social Studies: We will continue a unit called “How to Get Along with Others”. This week we will continue to learn what it means to be fair when making group decisions. Please continue to help your child with this concept of being responsible at home. We will continuously review what it means to be responsible at school and at home. (ex. help wash dishes, help feed the pet, help set the table, help make their bed, help pack their healthy afternoon snack.)
Writing: We will take a closer look at what narrative writing is. We will practice telling a story with a picture using dictation and details.
*Please remember: Your child needs to bring a healthy snack to school EVERYDAY! (ex. fruit, veggies, crackers. NO chips or cookies please!)
Thank you for all you do! Have an amazing week! ~Mrs. Mehrhof
