Classroom Update

Updated on January 23rd, 2018

On this site I will give a general overview of what we are working on in the classroom. This should help you to be aware of what we are working on and talk to your child about their school day.

Phonics-  We are now reviewing each sound card naming its picture, the sound, and also the spellings for the sound card. We have been blending words and well as making words with the letters that we are focusing on. Please continue to use the decodable books that are sent home to reinforce the sounds we are learning.


Reading Workshop-We are currently working on our non fiction unit. The children are learning how to get the most out of reading non fiction books and sharing with others what they have learned.

Writing- We started our unit writing all about books. The children have been picking topics that that they are experts on and writing books on those topics. They have shared books about family members, friends, animals, and places they have gone. We will continue to  work on editing for capitals and end marks. 

Math- We continue to work on  strategies when adding. In topic 7 we have focusing on number sense. They have been finding patterns on a number grid to help them when counting and writing numbers.

Social Studies- We are learning about maps and how they help us in daily life.
