What are We Learning this Month in Reading?
In our phonics instruction, we will be learning how to read and spell words with ending blend sounds, such as stamp, long, strand, etc. We will be using manipulatives to build words with ending blends and practicing to spell them as well in our writing. We will then begin learning how to create words with initial digraph sound, such as shop, chop, then, etc.

What are We Learning this Month in Writing?
We've Got Mail!! :)
I wanted to create a writing experience that would be authentic and exciting for the students. What better way than for them to be able to receive a handwritten letter each week from another first grader! :)
Please ask your child about what they have been learning about their pen pal through their friendly letters. :)
What are We Learning this Month in Science?
