March is Reading Month – We are asking for parents to come in a read stories to our classes. Please email or a remind text to your child’s teacher if you would like to read.
Spelling: Here are the words for this week. Please be sure to help your child practice EVERYDAY! The test is on FRIDAY! Your child will be tested on three word family words and three sight words. * We will also give your child a “cold word” to spell. This is a word that follows the pattern of the word family. (an ex. is zap)
Reading: We are practicing many reading strategies. This week we will practice narrative reading strategies using fiction books. We will identify when we do not know a word. We will practice asking questions to gain understanding of this unknown word. We will practice comparing adventures and experiences of characters in the books we read. In addition, we will practice identifying opposites. (up/down, in/out, off, on) Please practice the following sight words: (These are words your child needs to recognize and read by sight.)

Social Studies: We will begin our Unit on Maps. Students will be constructing maps of their classrooms and bedrooms.
Writing: This week we will review narrative writing. We will practice adding details to our writing and illustrations to our small moments. Please practice stretching for the sounds and using finger spaces between words with your child each day for homework. These writing skills are very important for moving into first grade.Thank you for all you do!
