Weekly Newsletter for October 22-26, 2018
Our next story in Reading will be “A Fox and a Kit.” We will be discussing how wild animals take care of their babies. Throughout our story we will work on identifying the main idea and key details.
Our focus phonics skills are inflected endings –s and –ing. The spelling words for this story are: sit, sits, win, wins, fit, fits, hit, hits, nap, and naps. Our challenge words are “her” and “too.”
In Math, we will continue to work on addition sentences to 10. We will work on finding the missing addend, and review using a number line. Key words we will focus on this week are: addend, plus, equal sign, and sum.
Last Friday, in our Friday Folders I sent home our October Scholastic Book Order forms. You may order online using our classroom code: MJJ8J or by sending in the book order with a payment (Checks payable to Scholastic INC.). All Scholastic Orders are due by Friday, October 26th.
