Our weekly theme is Getting Along.
Lots of review this week as we end our 3 week unit on FRIENDS. We will review the words like, a (remember to read this as “ahh”) and our letters S s P p. We will also be identifying areas of reading on which we need to focus to be good readers. Those areas are:
Comprehension –understanding what we read or is read to us
Accuracy-hearing, working, reading with good language
Fluency-recognizing letters, sounds, and words
Expanding-aware of print, increasing vocabulary in reading, writing, and speaking
WRITING-Writing a good sentence. First comes the idea that you want to write. Say the sentence/idea/thought. Does the sentence make sense? All of this is done before we write any words. Then we begin writing, stretching out each word, listening for sounds and writing the letters that go with the sounds. This is why it is important to know what sounds each letter makes. Next we have to know HOW to write each letter. There is a lot to writing!
MATH-We’ll discover ways we can use our bodies as tools for understanding and applying mathematical skills and concepts. We also will begin another section which has these main areas of focus:
-concepts of addition and subtraction through concrete acvtivities
-to extend number comparison skills
-skip counting by 10’s
-introduce the pan balance
Science: Continue exploration of the pumpkin
