## Highlights From Last Week....

Learning is FUN!

This week our class read stories about how our senses help us learn. Your child discovered ways in they use their senses.

We learned the vocabulary words: senses, explore, feast, kneads and finished. Our sight word was "see" and we focused on the letter Ss.

In Math, we worked on decomposing numbers with totals up to 9. We wrote numerals 1-9 in order. We learned how to write the numbers and used the numeral to represent a quantity.

In Science, we learned about the weather and seasons.

## A peek at our learning this week...

This week will be a busy week of learning!

This week our class will be focusing on the tools people use every day to help them work, play, cook, and do their chores. Children will also be reading about tools such as utensils to eat, a calculator to add, and a shovel to dig holes.

Here are some activities that you can do with your child to help reinforce the skills we will be practicing.

Word Workout

• Vocabulary: tool, discover Invite your child to hunt for different kinds of tools and tell what each one is used for. Make a list of the tools and read it together when youâ€™re done.
• My Words to Know

High-Frequency Word: a Write simple sentences and leave a blank in each sentence to represent the word a. Have your child write the word a in the blanks. Then read each sentence together.

Category Words: colors Draw simple pictures of tools on paper. Have your child color each tool.

Phonics: p Invite your child to hunt for household objects that begin or end with the letter p. Write each word on a sticky note and have your child circle the p.

In Math, we will work on decomposing numbers with totals up to 10. We will write numerals 1-10 in order. We will learn how to write the numbers and use the numeral to represent a quantity. We will also solve word problems by acting them out.
