This week in Class...

Reading: We worked on the letter Gg and the sight words "was" and "play". We continued to work on stretching out the sounds in CVC words (i.e cat, big, dad...). We keep working on sounding out words and this week I have noticed a great improvement in their ability to do this!! Very exciting and something to celebrate at home too! We have been learning about word families too.

Writing: The student are doing really well writing the sight words they know when they write but they sort of break down when asked to sound out a word they would like to write that they don't know how to spell. We will continue to work on it! This is also being seen in reading too as they have a big correlation. I have found a couple apps for those students who struggle when they write to use to build their confidence.

Math: This week we started our Module 5. We took a look at numbers 1-10 and how to put them in 5-frames. We also continue to work on counting and number recognition as well as number word recognition!

Science: We spent this week and will continue it into next week, learning about Christmas around the world. This week we traveled to 3 different places and are excited to tell you about all we learned!

What's Coming up Next Week?

Next week our theme is Christmas Around the World. The children will get to learn and experience different things that make Christmas special around the world.

We will be working on the letter Oo and the sight words "are"and "had".

Please remember as the snow begins to fly to send your child to school with boots, snowpants, hat, gloves, and a coat. I only have a few extra of each of these things!

Important Dates to Remember:

Dec 18- Grinch Day: Dress up as favorite Grinch Character

Dec 22- Polar Express Day: Come to school in PJs

Dec 23- Holiday Party and Gift Exchange: Can bring treats if you would like. We will be doing a small gift exchange ($5) between the children. If your child would like to participate they need to bring a wrapped gift to school by the 23rd. Boys will exchange with boys and girls with girls. If your child would like to participate but things at home prevent them from doing so, please let me know and I will do my best to help!
