Weekly Newsletter for March 25-29, 2019
We will begin our new story, “Honey Bees,” this week! We will discuss how insect communities are like a community of people. We will also revisit the skill of compare and contrast! Our high frequency words are family, other, also, their, some and new.
Our focus phonics skills are the Long E sound and syllables VC/CV. The spelling words for this story are: feet, he, see, we, green, me, she, tree, week, and be. Our challenge words are “some” and “family.”
In Math, we will continue to work on time and begin measurement! This week we are focusing on working with “half past” or “thirty” on an analog and digital clock. We will also begin to discuss measurement using different items to measure with!
