Weekly Newsletter for September 25-29, 2017
This week, our students will be focusing on the AR in the S.P.AR.T.Y rules. We will be discussing ways we can Act Responsible in the classroom, hallway, cafeteria and at recess.
Our spelling words for the story are: six, lip, in, wig, it, did, mix, sit, pin and fix. Our challenge words are: “she” and “take.” Our focus phonics skill for this story is the short I sound.
For our story Pig in a Wig, we will be identifying the story elements of characters and setting. We will also be discussing who helps animals and how we can help animals!
In Math, we are beginning to introduce subtraction or “take away.” This week we will be looking at finding the missing parts of numbers, as well as, learning how to write a subtraction sentence! Listen for key vocabulary terms such as: minus sign, equal sign, difference, and subtraction sentence!
