Week Of September 25th
Highlights From Last Week....
In Phonics, we practiced letter sounds "m" and "n" and learned the sight word "like".
In Math, we worked on finding hidden partners in numbers. For instance, in the number five, two hidden partners might be 2 and 3 or 1 and 4. The children loved playing math detectives to find out the hidden partners in numbers.
In writer's workshop, we worked on telling stories out loud and having our friends retell our stories back to us. The children loved sharing their stories!
In Social Studies, we worked on what a community is and what it looks like in our classroom. We read several books about friendship and how to make friends!
A peek at our learning this week...
In Reader's Workshop, we will continue to read by looking at the pictures and retelling familiar stories. We will continue to practice turning and talking.
In Writer's Workshop, we will practice creating a story and using a sight word sentence to match.
In Phonics, we will be practicing letter sounds "i" and "u" and learning the sight words "go" and "see". So far our sight words are I, can, like, go and see, please practice these words at home.
In Math, we will work on decomposing numbers to 3 and learn that 1+2=3. We will also start looking at numbers 0, 1, 2, and 3. We will learn how to write the numbers and use the numeral to represent a quantity.
We will continue to work on our classroom community in Social Studies.
Great job working reading with your child! We will continue sending home new reading logs weekly! Keep up the great work! We are noticing your children are already developing a love for books!
Notes from Mrs. Maillet
We are learning machines! I finished our classroom assessments and we are well on our way to learning our letter names and sounds. Some of our friends may need some extra practice at home so I sent home a list of letters and sight words to those that need it. Please practice these nightly. Thank you in advance!!!
