Weekly Newsletter for December 11-15, 2017
We have started a new unit in Reading! In this unit we will be focusing on communities! For our first story, “A Big Fish for Max” we will be discussing different things that families can do together. Our class will also be practicing sequencing events! Key words for sequencing are: first, then, next, and finally.
Our phonics skills for this story are consonant digraphs sh and th and vowel sound “al.” Our spelling words are: fish, then, shut, with, rush, shell, shop, trash, thin, and ship. Our challenge words are: “want” and “good.”
In Math, we are continuing to discuss strategies that can be used to find addition facts! Recently, we have been identifying doubles, doubles +1, doubles +2, or completing the ten frame with our addends! Our test for Topic 5 will be Wednesday, December 13th!
On Friday, report cards were sent home! Along with the report card you received a copy of your child’s results for the OLSAT that was given by our guidance counselor, Mrs. Hull. Attached to our newsletter is a note from Mrs. Hull explaining the OLSAT.
Please continue to read with your child and log their reading on the December AR reading log! December AR reading logs will be collected on Thursday, December 21st.
