What Did We Learn At School This Week?
Here's what we learned about letters and words . . .
- We can match letters and sounds at the beginning of a word and when we see a letter at the beginning of a word, we can make its sound.
- When we know the sound we can find the letter.
New Sight Words: look, said
Poem: Jelly on the Plate
Alphabet Linking Chart
- We learned that making a text-to-self connection is thinking about how the text (story) is like something that happened in our own life.
- We wrote our opinion about a story and explained the reasons why we felt that way.
Please read to your child every day!
Please listen to your child read his or her Guided Reading Books nightly. Don't forget to fill in the log with the title of each Guided Reading book that is read.

We will continue to share family celebrations for the next two weeks. We will talk about how families celebrate, what they do during these celebrations, what they eat, and where they celebrate.
Getting to know each other and our families is a good way to demonstrate respect and to acquire more knowledge about other families' customs.
We began Module 5 this week. Students developed the concept of zero by counting objects 1-9 and comparing them to the numeral 0.
Students played games to match quantities to numerals and number names with numbers from 0-10.
Students used the app Doodle Buddy (a free app) with a partner to create their own 0-10 number book.
Please refer to the Module 5 Parent Letter for ideas on how to strengthen and support these new math skills at home. This letter was sent home on Thursday as well.

New READO Cards
READO #2 - English
READO #2 - Spanish
You may have noticed some different spots this time. For example: "Read a book from the Everybody "A" Section." Read the paragraphs below for an explanation:
Each section in the "Everybody" collection is labeled with a letter corresponding to the author's last name. The purpose of placing those on the READO cards was to begin to allow our students to notice how the books are organized/separated in the library.
If you would like to select books outside of our library, then you just need to match the letter on the card to the last name of the author of the books your child selects.
