Weekly Newsletter for March 5- 9, 2018
We will begin a new Unit in Reading focusing on changes. For our first story, “A Place to Play,” we will be discussing how places change. We will also be re-visiting the skill of sequencing throughout this story.
Our focus phonics skills for this story are vowel sounds of y and syllable pattern cv. Our spelling words are: my, by, try, sunny, handy, fly, cry, lucky, silly and puppy. Our challenge words for this story include: “things” and “always.”
In Math, we will continue to compare and order numbers to 100. Key vocabulary we will be using include: more, less, greater than, and less than.
March 5- March 9th is Newspaper in Education week! Read at Home Challenge papers were sent home today in your child’s Friday Folder. If you are interested in participating, please return the paper by Monday, March 12th. Your child’s name will be published in the Republican & Herald at a later date. To go along with Newspaper in Education week, I have submitted an “ad” to the Republican & Herald. This ad will be placed in the classified section of the newspaper sometime this week! J
