What Did We Learn At School This Week?
Phonograms: -at, -an
Here's what we learned about letters and words . . .
- Some words have patterns (parts) that are the same.
- You can look at the pattern (part) you know to help you read a word.
- You can use the pattern (part) you know to help you write a word.
New Sight Words: be, she
Poem: "Short a Song"
Alphabet Linking Chart
- We learned how to make text-to-text connections.
- We learned that making a text-to-text connection is thinking about how the text (story) you are reading reminds you of another text.
- We wrote our opinion about about a story and explained the reasons why we felt that way.
Please read to your child every day!
Please listen to your child read his or her Guided Reading Books nightly. Don't forget to fill in the log with the title of each Guided Reading book that is read.
We will continue to share family celebrations next week. We will talk about how families celebrate, what they do during these celebrations, what they eat, and where they celebrate.
Getting to know each other and our families is a good way to demonstrate respect and to acquire more knowledge about other families' customs.
This week students represented numbers 1-10 using five-frames and ten-frames. They also identified how many more or less the number was than 5. This skill helps students to develop number sense and aids in fluent recall of addition and subtraction facts.
Students also participated in building and describing a repeating pattern. Each class practiced creating and building patterns in their own unique ways.
Please refer to the Module 5 Parent Letter for ideas on how to strengthen and support these math skills at home. This letter was sent home last Thursday.

New READO Cards
READO #2 - English
READO #2 - Spanish
You may have noticed some different spots this time. For example: "Read a book from the Everybody "A" Section." Read the paragraphs below for an explanation:
Each section in the "Everybody" collection is labeled with a letter corresponding to the author's last name. The purpose of placing those on the READO cards was to begin to allow our students to notice how the books are organized/separated in the library.
If you would like to select books outside of our library, then you just need to match the letter on the card to the last name of the author of the books your child selects.
