Language Arts

Students should know how to identify all of their upper case and lower case letters. Out of order, in random sequences.

Student should know all of their letter sounds.

Students should be able to print all of their letters neatly.

Students should be able to print their first and last name correctly, with the first letter capitalized and the rest lower case.

Students should be able to draw a picture and write a few words to match the picture. These words should have at least the beginning letter sound and the ending letter sound.

*by now students are writing at least one sentence. Some are ready to write multiple sentences.

Sight Words To Work On At Home:

We have started working on individual sight words.

The "BOLD" words are what we have learned so far. The other words will be introduced slowly. Students must be able to read these words and spell/write them by the end of the school year. Please make word cards at home a practice these as a family when you have time.








































This Month In Math:

We have learned all of our math facts using numbers 0-5.

Next , we will be learning our math facts up to 10.

Addition facts are easier, subtraction facts are harder to learn.

In math we also learn that "number partners" make a math fact, like 3+2 and 2+3 are number partners that make 5...

We have to learn our numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.

We have just finished learning our numbers 11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20.

Please practice printing your numbers.

We are counting to 100.

We are counting by 10's.

We are writing our numbers past 20.

We are learning all of our shapes, circle, rectangle, square, triangle, hexagon.
