We had a good first week following Thanksgiving Break. I’m thankful for this group of students, and most importantly a great group of parents! The students did a good job with their introduction to Measurement. They also wrote about their favorite things to do during the Day and at Night, and learned the Letter U. We read stories about the Gingerbread man and retold it after we read. On Friday, they decorated their own gingerbread boy or girl, and most of them loved eating it afterwards!
Here is what we are learning the week of December 4th:
Math: Measurement-I can compare objects by length, height, weight, and capacity.
Writing: I can write sentences using capital letters, finger spacing, and punctuation.
Reading: I can tell the difference between fiction and nonfiction stories.
Phonics: Letter Rr
Social Studies: I can learn about Christmas and how other cultures celebrate.
Continue working with your child to memorize their sight words. Read with them each day and have them retell the story events to you. Practice all the letters they have learned: go over the sounds and how to form and write them.
Have a great week!
