Reader's Workshop

This week we learned about the difference between fiction and non-fiction books. We learned that fiction books tell a story. They can have animals, people, or things as characters and that the characters do things that people do. Non-fiction books teach us something,have facts, and most of the time have photographs. They really enjoyed going on a non-fiction/fiction book hunt!

Writer's Workshop

This week in writing we published our favorite books we have written. During our Launching unit students were able to write about any topic they wanted. Most everyone came home with a TON of books because they LOVE writing! I kept their publish piece here at school to share with you at conferences.


This week in math we worked with ten frames. We practiced building numbers on our ten frames and worked on being able to recognize patterns and numbers quickly. We played a matching game where students had to match the ten frame to the correct number.

Sight Words

Please work with our student on the following words:

  • Red
  • Blue
  • Pink
  • Purple

Along with sight words, it is always helpful to practice letter names and sounds :)
