Reading: We have been working on word families (an, am, ap), sight words and reading leveled books. Helpful Tip: Read 10 minutes nightly (either sight word booklet or the leveled readers).
Writing: We have been practicing printing properly (top to bottom) and using a proper letter size. We have been journal writing simple sentences and practicing our sounding out skills.
Oral: We are working at listening to others when they are speaking and not interrupting.
We have been spending lots of time counting forward to 100 and backwards from 20. We have been skip counting by 2, 5 and 10. We have been focusing on numbers to 30 and it is imperative that the children be able to recognize numbers as we move forward with the math curriculum.
Helpful Tip: Ask your kids questions from the calendar make recognizing and counting as meaningful as possible.
