Week of 2-4-2019
I hope this message finds you all well and thawed out! We will hopefully have four full days of school this week, but don’t forget that kindergarten only does not have school on Friday because teachers have a full day of professional development.
I will send any updates of school information as they come. Have a wonderful week!
Ms. Shapas 🙂
Homework: This week your child will receive a math game to put in their math binder and the next 5 lessons in math. Please complete and return the stapled math lessons, I am checking and staring off the lessons that are completed and returned.
*Popcorn: Kindergarten will not be here for popcorn sales this week, but feel free to send in quarters with siblings if you have older kiddos at DuVall.
*Library check out: This week we have check out. Please help your child bring place their books in the backpacks tonight!
*Reading Packs: Make sure your child is spending about 10-15 minutes reading at night on the books, letters/words you find in the reading packs. This will help your child SO much reviewing their personal bags each night!
LA Books: Informational Books about “Penguins” (We will read and research about penguins this month). Books about kindness this month.
*If your child does NOT have any penguin books, I would love to encourage your child to visit the Dearborn Public Library to get a library card, check out some great new books, and find some books on penguins!
*If you like looking on the computer with your child, we’d love to read some child friendly articles on penguins!
Writing Topic: Informational Writing: Penguins (Can, Have, Are) We have begun taking our writing plans and putting them into sentences in a rough draft. I am so proud of our writing skills!
-at (cat, mat, hat, *fat, rat,*bat, *sat) and -an(can, *man, *fan, ran, van, *pan)
Sight Words: went, with, am, have
-words with a * are definitely on the test, I will add two cold words to make a total of 5 words on the spelling test on Fridays. In addition there will be the two “sight words of the week” to make sure we keep learning the sight words on the Dolch List!
-please practice writing the word families and the sight words every week! this will help the kids read and write those words as well!
