Language Arts

This week we are reading a non-fiction story called Animals Building Homes. We will be learning about text features and how to find information in a non-fiction story. In Phonics we will be focusing on final consonant blends. In Grammar we are continuing to learn about nouns and we will be learning how to make a noun plural. As always, please keep the blue sheet that goes with this unit. All vocabulary and spelling words are listed.

Reminder: All tests, except those testing comprehension, are read aloud during the first nine weeks. All comprehension tests are open book throughout the entire year.

Reading logs will come home on October 3rd and will be a part of nightly homework.


We have started Unit 2. We are learning all about even and odd numbers, using arrays to find totals, and making arrays. Last week your child should have brought home a sheet of purple vocabulary cards. Please use those vocabulary cards to practice with your child.

We are continuing to take fact tests. Fact practice logs will start in October. Your child will bring home their first log on October 3rd. Fact practice logs will be a part of nightly homework.
