Mrs. Seeley's Weekly Stats

January 19-22

Dear Parents,


All homework is located in the new Red Homework Folder. Your child will still be bringing a book home in his/her binder each night, but the log is now located in the folder. Please record the books read by your child on the reading log and return it. Homework folders are to be completed and due each Friday. I am going to be keeping track of how many books each child is reading each week. When your child reaches 100 books they will get to have a pizza lunch with me in the classroom. I want them to read, read, read! One of our New Year's resolutions was to read more each day. We are trying to fulfill our goal!

Reading

We will take a closer look at the differences between fiction and nonfiction. We will look at the purpose for both types of books, why we need them, and what distinguishing features they both have.


We will continue our author study on Jan Brett.


Phonics - This week we will focus on the long i sound spelled igh, y, and ie.

Writing

We will continue to write poetry. We will be preparing for our Coffeehouse Poetry celebration to take place on January 26 at 8:15. We hope you all can join us! We cannot wait to share our writing with you!

Math

We will continue subtraction with larger numbers. We will focus on "counting up" and "counting back" to subtract.


We are working daily on place value through our "math minute."

Social Sciences

We are learning all about non-fiction text features while we are learning about animals.
