Journey's Jargon-Lesson 8
Main Idea, detail, detail, and detail is what we looked at this past cycle. We learned that readers can figure out the main idea of the selection by looking for details. A Mystery Bag was used to show how details help them figure our the main idea. Ask your child what was in the mystery bag. It was great way to introduce this skill. We also read, The Night I Followed My Dog, to explore this strategy. It was a very silly book and the class really enjoyed it.
We added VERBS to our repertoire this cycle. It was actually a review from First Grade. They have a song we learned from YouTube; you can ask them to sing it to you!
Our word study moved forward and we looked at diagraphs. Thank you for continuing to help your child study and practice their weekly words.

We began Unit 4 late last week with a review of Change-to-More and Part Part Total Number Stories. We reviewed the diagrams they saw last year. In the coming weeks, we will learn many new concepts. We will most likely slow the Unit down to make sure everyone understands these new items. If you have any questions please let me know.
Did you hear about our Kahoot game? It was loads of fun. The entire class was engaged while we reviewed Unit 3. It was an an exciting way to practice math.
