Our Class News
March 12, 2015
This week in reading we reviewed several different comprehension skills - we identified the problem & solution of a story, we discussed how a character's feeling can change and identified important events in stories.
We practiced using the strategy of using the beginning sound with what we already know would make sense to figure out unknown words. There is a link to a slideshow in the newsletter that explains the strategy a little more. The students shouldn't feel like they have to completely sound out every word they don't know, that's the hurdle we are trying to get over.
In math we are learning learning about 3D/ solid shapes- sphere, cube, cylinder, cone, pyramid, etc. Ask your child to look around the house for items that are shaped like each of these.
I am out today due to an appointment but will return Friday. Remember tomorrow is an EARLY RELEASE!
