Table Talk

This is where I share a few things that we have been learning this week, great discussion for at the dinner table (hence “Table Talk”)!


1) Sight Words: Our Sight Words of the week were “from” and "been". We will have our latest sight word test on Tuesday. Please practice with all 20 words for mastery.


2) Math: We are currently working on learning 2D shapes and 3D objects in math. See if your child can explain the difference. Then list as many 3D objects as you can and do a little hunt around your home for objects that match (ex: sphere, cube, rectangular prism, cone, pyramid, cylinder).


3) Literacy: We have been focusing a lot on comprehension during whole class and small group reading this week. Try asking your child questions about the stories you read together before, during and after you read. You will be amazed at how this positively affects their comprehension.

A Glimpse Into Our Classroom...

We went on a beautiful spring walk for recess today! We all enjoyed the exercise and time together!
