    We worked on the short vowel a this week.  We included our vocabulary words, sight words, spelling words, and short vowel in all our stories.  We pick them out, we highlight, and we write them on white boards.  We do a lot of identifying the skills we are working on each week.  We also have a "puzzle" that we glue into a notebook here at school.  Whatever the sound/letters we are working on, we highlight that sound/letters in the puzzle, we put four pictures "details" in the correct order, then we read it to someone in the room.  This happens each week. We continue to work on reading with accuracy and our comprehension.  We not only need to read the words, but understand what we are reading.  

    READING FOLDERS were sent home today with new spelling words, sight words, and book.  I know the books may be easy.  I just want them to get the routine down the first couple times.  I will soon have a book that is at their reading level.  Thank you for your patience.  Folders are due at the end of each week.  Students only need to practice 4 times.  BUT, if they are having a hard time with the words, spelling, or book, please PRACTICE MORE. I would like them to know the words, be able to spell the words, and read the book fluently.  Thank you for all your support at home.  It really pays off!!!!!! :)   

    We took our math test this week.  This takes a couple days, since some of the parts are open ended.  Students need to write, not just fill in blanks of problems.  I will send them home next week after I have had a chance to look over the results.  We will begin our next chapter Monday.  We will be learning about addition and multiple strategies to use with our math schemas.

    Please send a note if your child's after school plans change from their normal routine. Thank You!
