Table Talk

This is where I share a few things that we have been learning in class, great discussion for at the dinner table (hence “Table Talk”)!

1) Sight words- ALMOST DONE! WOHOO!

2) Math-We continue to work on adding and subtracting. As well we have been focusing on numbers to 100. Play "missing numbers" with your family. Tell your family about patterns in the 100 chart.

3) Science- Science topics for May/June include exploring the 5 senses, as well as discussing ways to take care of our earth and environment. We have also started our unit on plants and animals. 18 days until the ducks hatch! Ask your child about the duck eggs.

4) Letters/Sounds- We are continuing to review tricky sounds and letter combinations. We are working on transferring them to our writing as well.

Practice words that have these endings- ing (jumping, making)

ed (played, jumped)

5) Writing- We are currently working on adding more details to our writing. Ask your child about a "3 star sentence".

6) Words their Way- W.T.W. sorts come home every Friday. Have your child review their sort with you.

Try playing "no peeking" and "back writing".

7) Reading- We are working on reading with good fluency. We have been paying attention to punctuation as we read to make sure we are taking appropriate pauses, reading with excitement, etc.

*Note: As your child begins taking home buddy books that are longer, feel free to have your child keep the buddy book to read over a few nights (maybe even more depending on length). Please just let me know in the agenda.
