Important: Christmas Program for K-2 is December 3
Please enjoy your time off with family and friends. This time of year is one of my favorites. I am so thankful for so many things in my life. I am so thankful that I get to spend each day with your child. God Bless!
Since this week is a short week, we did some turkey fun pages to review our concepts we have learn so far.
Reading/Phonics: We will finish our story about firefighters and work on a graphic organizer for the main idea. We will be reading a story this week called Worksong. We will work on drawing conclusions. We will introduce the long sound of Oo and Ii. Please practice changing short vowel words to long vowel words. (ex. can- cane, man-mane)
Writing Workshop: We will begin our friendly letters this week. We will learn the parts of a friendly letter. We will also be writing our own letters.
Religion: We will review the meaning of the Our Father and make a daily prayer book. We will end the week with our unit 1 review and quiz.
Math: We will begin our chapter for subtraction strategies. We will us blocks or touch math to count back. We will use a number line to jump or hop backwards. We will also use doubles to help us with subtraction. (4+4=8 so 8-4=4) We will end the week with a 10’s game. We will become out of the box thinkers and practice making 10 to help us subtract! This is always one of the kid’s favorites because we teach it as a game!!
Science: We will be working our daily science books this week. We will do some review about animal habitats.
Spelling: Spelling words are starting to get harder. Please make sure you are practicing at home!! Test will be Thursday, December 3.
