Notes

Reading/Writing

We read stories about sounds. We studied the phonics skill of "ow/ou" and our grammar skill was adjectives. Next week we will be learning the phonics skills of "oi" and "oy." Our grammar skill will be prepositions. Our sight words will be: above, build, fall, knew, money, toward.



Your child can work on the Raz-Kids website at anytime for more practice on reading comprehension. If you think your child's level is too easy let me know and I can increase the difficulty. The teacher username is: smitchellav

Math

This week we worked on dollars, place value, coins, and making change. Next week we will work on equal shares, fractions, sharing pennies, and explorations.

*Our goal at the end of first grade is to pass Level 5 in chomputation.

* We now have an awesome website where your child can practice their own specific level of chomputation on the computer. This website was created by a South Creek parent!!

We read stories about leprechaun folklore. The leprechaun visited our class while we were at specials! We continued our Science chapter on engineering and materials. If you are an engineer and would like to come speak to our class about your job, please let me know. Thank you!
