Weekly Newsletter for April 2-6, 2018
We will begin our new story this week titled, “The Class Pet.” Throughout our story we will be discussing how we can learn about animals as they grow and change. We will also begin discussing the difference between fact and opinion and identifying a fact vs. opinion.
Our focus phonics skills for this story are words with –es and r-controlled (or, ore). Our spelling words are: fix, fixes, class, classes, wish, wishes, kiss, kisses, bus, buses. Our challenge words include: “friends” and “very.”
In Math, we are continuing to discuss length by answering how objects can be measured, compared and ordered by length. Vocabulary for this topic includes: longest, shortest, taller, shorter, estimate and measure. Our test for Topic 12 will be on Thursday, April 5th.
