What's happening this week...
Language Arts- This week's spelling patterns are r controlled vowels -ar, -or and -ore. Students learned that when they hear the or sound at the end of the word it must in in an e. We also learned there are exceptions to this rule, like four and for. We will continue to practice identifying this pattern in our reading and centers as well. We are begining a 5 week unit over nouns. This week we will begin by review what nouns are: person, place, thing/animal.
Math-- We are half way done with our skip counting and number patterns unit. It has been going very well. Keep practicing skip counting by 2's, 5's and 10's. We are at the point where we do not always start at 2, or 5 or 10. Have them practice starting a various spots, like counting by 5's starting at 35, or 2's starting at 26, etc. We will take a look at more equal groups, arrays and even and odd numbers this week. We will have a Math test NEXT Wednesday the 24th.
*Remember to practice math facts every day. It is so important that they are fluent in those facts. Use Xtramath.org or whatever strategy works best for your child.
Social Studies/Science--We will have a test over Georgia Regions and Rivers this Wednesday. Their journals went home last week for them to study. Their journal is filled with different facts about geography and natural resources of each region. They also include maps of the regions and rivers to help them study where they are located. Please remember that our journals contain all the information students need to study.
