Weekly Newsletter for March 19-23, 2018
In our new story, “Ruby in Her Own Time,” we will be discussing what we learn as we grow and change. As a class, we will also be re-visiting the skill of compare and contrast.
Our focus phonics skills for this story are words with –ng and –nk and compound words. Our spelling words are: bring, trunk, pink, bank, sang, wing, rink, blank, rang, and sunk. Our challenge words include: “every” and “sure.”
In Math, we took our Topic 9 test today! Next, we will be diving into “length” in Topic 12. Throughout this topic, we will be discussing how objects can be measured, compared and ordered by length.
