Reading: The children have been working on the sounds, sh, ch, th, wh. We have been learning about bossy e making the vowel say their own name and tricky y at the end of the word.
Helpful Tip: Read 10 minutes nightly (either sight word booklet or the leveled readers).
Writing: We continue to practice printing properly (top to bottom) and using a proper letter size. We have been journal writing using adjectives to add interest. We are also working on using writing goals to learn how to edit our work.
Oral: We continue to work at listening to others when they are speaking and not interrupting. We are learning to speak using a clear voice.
We have spent a lot of time adding and subtracting using mental math as well as manipulatives. We have begun to talk about equality (4+4 = 8 or 6+2)
We have begun our unit on life systems. We are investigating plants and how living things grow, take in food to create energy, make waste, and reproduce.
We continue on our Lenten journey understanding the path that Jesus took for us. Keep working on your Lenten bags at home.
