Mrs. Seeley's Weekly Stats

March 21-25

Wiggly Worms


There are two elements that make up the process of reading comprehension: vocabulary knowledge and text comprehension. This week I will highlight vocabulary knowledge. In order to understand a text the reader must be able to comprehend the vocabulary used in the piece of writing. If the individual words don’t make the sense then the overall story will not either. Children can draw on their prior knowledge of vocabulary, but they also need to continually be taught new words. Each week we focus on 3-6 new vocabulary words. The children love to come home and try to use their new, big words. We also try to locate these words in our reading or use them in our conversations with others.

Phonics - This week we will focus on the long e sound spelled - y, -ie, and -ey. Please practice the spelling words for this week located on the homework sheet in the red homework folder.


This week we will start a book on animals of the ocean. We will focus on a fantastic beginning, interesting facts, and a fabulous ending.


We will continue adding and subtracting two-digit numbers. We will focus on adding and subtracting one digit numbers, as well as multiples of ten from two digit numbers.

Keep practicing with your flash cards! I can definitely tell the ones who are practicing!!

Social Sciences

This week we will be studying fish.
