This week we will work on:
Language Arts: We will be learning about consonant cluster blends at the end of words this week. Included are ft, lt, lp, and mp. Please review with your child at home to reinforce these sounds.
We are continuing our read aloud, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz! We will be discussing characters, settings, problems, solutions, and predictions as we read through the story. We just reached the Emerald City!
Writing: This week we will be working on our writing about either “The worst Day Ever” or “The Best Day Ever”. We will learn how to write our Mighty Middle (first, next, and last with details), and our Excellent Ending.
Math: This week we will be learning several addition strategies including doubles, doubles plus one (also known as near doubles), and making ten.
Social Studies: We will complete our unit about our global address and will begin our unit on continents and oceans this week. Please study the following for a test on Friday: Identify & locate city, county, state, country & continent on a simple map or globe. I sent home a packet to study with. If your child writes their address on the last page and brings it in on Monday they will get two extra gems! It is very important for your child to know their address. I would love to have some stamps for the kids to send a letter home to their parents. They will address their own envelopes!
Homework: Students will bring home their Homework on Monday each week. Please initial the “read for 20 minutes” section. Every student who has their homework completely done (including initials) will get a gem on Friday! Extra homework sheets may be sent home during the week. All homework is due on Friday morning! If your student stays in ASP, have them keep their homework in their book bags.
