Yay!! We are back to in-person learning this week!!

It was a busy week last week!

This week our class read stories about what how living things change as they grow.

We learned the new vocabulary words: develop, amazing, enormous, imagine, and content.

We learned the new sight word "are" and the letter Ee.

In Math, we worked on one more and one less.

A peek at our learning this week....

This week our class will be reading stories about the kinds of fresh foods grown on a farm. Your child will be identifying different kinds of fruits and vegetables.

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

High-Frequency Words: he, with Write the words he and with on paper and ask your child to trace both words. Write a sentence using each word. Have your child point to, circle, and say each word.

Category Words: fruits and vegetables Write the names of fruits and vegetables on index cards. Have your child draw a picture of the word on each card. Then invite your child to sort the cards into fruit and vegetable piles.

Phonics: f, r Play “I Spy” with your child. Open one of your child’s books and say a clue. For example: I spy a number. It starts with the letter f. (four)
