Weekly Newsletter for October 16- 20, 2017
We are diving into our new story this week called, “The Big Blue Ox.” We will be discussing the characters and setting of our story! We will also discuss how animals can help people.
Our spelling words for this week are: hot, hop, pot, pop, ox, lock, mop, got, rock, and mom. Our challenge words are “help” and “use.” The phonics focus skills for this story are the short o, and the plural –s.
We will be taking our Topic 2 Subtraction test on Wednesday, October 18th. Next, we will dive into Topic 3: Five and Ten Relationships. As a class, we will be practicing identifying numbers within a 10-frame, as well as, being able to build our own 10- frame to show a number! This is a very short topic, so our test will likely be early next week!
As a class, we love to read and listen to stories! It is very important that kids hear fluent reading and activate comprehension strategies. One way we can practice these skills is by having guest readers come into our classroom! If any parent/ grandparent/ guardian would like to come into our class, please let me know by writing me a note, email or Class Dojo message!
