Language Arts: Week of March 31, 2014
Letter of the Week:
We will be reviewing this week. We will continue to work on the letters "K" and "U." We will discuss words that begin with each of these letters, as well as the sounds that each letter makes. We will also continue to wrk on words that end with "ck."
Word Wall Words:
We will not be adding any new words to our word wall. Instead, we will continue to review the words that we have already learned. Please continue to work on these words at home. There is a list of these words on your child's report card. Please practice these words, especially the ones that your child did not know. Anything you can do at home is greatly appreciated!
We will be having our unit test on Friday!
Caterpillars and Butterflies:
This week, we will be studying caterpillars and butterflies. We will be reading "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle. We will also be reading a nonfiction story about butterflies. We will be doing several activities this week about butterflies!
Extra 30 Minutes:
We will be using the extra 30 minutes of class time to read and take AR quizzes. We will be doing this in both classes. The students will be taking quizzes on books read to them and books they read to themselves. I am very excited about having the time to work on AR!
