What Did We Learn At School This Week?
Here's what we learned about letters and words . . .
- Some words have patterns (parts) that are the same.
- You can look at the pattern (part) you know to help you read a word.
- You can use the pattern (part) you know to help you write a word.
New Sight Words: that
Poem: "Short e Song"
Want to Help Your Child With Letter Sounds?
Suggestion - don't always practice from A-Z - mix it up - go out of order. :)
- We continued our Author study on Eric Carle by "Writing Like the Author" and creating an innovation on the book, Little Cloud. An innovation is when you have a new idea based on someone else's idea.
- We learned to identify the main character, setting, problem and solution in several Eric Carle books.
- We read The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle and thought of questions that we would like to ask the spider.
Want to enjoy some Eric Carle stories or learn more about him at home? Check out the links below!
- Does my writing make sense?
- Does my writing look right? (spaces, capital letters, neat, etc.)
- Does my writing sound right? (Did I leave any words out? Did I write the correct word?)
This week we continued working in Module 6. Students learned to write two addends and then the total to make an addition sentence. They learned to read the operation word 'add' and wrote sentences such as 3 add 4 is 7 or 3 add 4 makes 7. Students practiced these new skills by playing math addition games. We also practiced addition using pennies to help us understand the idea that addition involves adding to a quantity.
Please refer to the Module 6 Parent Letter for ideas on how to strengthen and support these math skills at home.
Module 6 Parent Letter - English
Module 6 Parent Letter - Spanish
Please send a baggie of 25 pennies for your student to use during math next week.
On our own, we reflected on and wrote about which Learner Action we used during this project and described how it helped us to be successful. We also reflected on how we could make our machines better.
You will be able to see all of our hard work on our upcoming Standards Boards in the Kindergarten hallways!
