Week Of March 22nd

Highlights from last week....

This week was a busy week of learning.

In ELA, we learned about how to take care of pets. Our sight words were of and they and our letters were g and w.

In Math, we learned about subtraction and how to write subtraction sentences.

A peek at our learning this week....

This week our class will be reading stories about different kinds of animals and the habitats in which they live. Children will discover that animals live in caves, dens, burrows, trees, forest, deserts, and oceans.

Here are some activities that you can do with your child to help reinforce the skills we will be practicing.

Word Workout

  • Vocabulary: habitat, wild Brainstorm a list of wild animals and the habitats, or homes, in which they live.
  • My Words to Know

High-Frequency Words: said, want Gently write the words said and want with your finger on your child’s arm. Then have your child to use each word in a sentence as you record the sentences on paper.

Category Words: animal homes Read a poem to your child about animals and their habitats. Then, have your child draw pictures of animal homes.

Phonics: x, v Play a rhyming game. Say, I’m thinking of an animal that rhymes with box. (fox) Then write the word fox. Have your child circle the letter x. Repeat the activity with letter v.

In Math, we will continue to work on writing subtraction number sentences.

In Science, we will begin our unit on Habitats. We will learn about the Arctic Tundra this week.
