Kraft Class Update

Subtraction in Action
This week we took a trip to the library to spread out and explore some subtraction in action! Mrs. Sayre set up 4 different stations for us to create subtraction problems and solve them using various objects. We had lots of fun!
Reading: Super Kids
The memory words are said, only, you, out, of, and here. Please practice spelling these words correctly, as well as reading these words with ease at home. The sound spelling pattern is the long vowel sound at the end of words like “hi”, “go” and “we”. With these words, the vowel is at the end, so the vowel sound is long/says its name.
*A packet of activities that connect to this week’s skills was sent home. This is not homework, but it makes for great practice work. Enjoy!
While reading with your children every night, please discuss/point out memory words, spelling patterns, and ask them questions about the book they read.
Writing: Author Share
Before closing up writing every day, we try to make time for writers to share their hard work with the class. The students are so proud of their teaching books and love sharing them with the class using the projector!
Please send box tops to school. Thank you for your support!
A new reading log went home today (inside Friday Folder). If your child forgot to turn their log in, please send it to school on Monday.
