What Did We Learn At School This Week?
Here's what we learned about letters and words . . .
- Some words sound the same at the beginning and we can connect the words thta sound the same at the beginning.
New Sight Words: so, on, white
Alphabet Linking Chart
- Learned to identify the problem and solution in a story.
- We drew a picture and wrote about the problem and solution in our Reading Response notebook.
Don't forget to listen to your child read his or her Guided Reading books every night! Be sure to log the books your child reads every night.
Please read to your child, as well.
It was very interesting to know how our family is like other families and how it is different from others, but we all have a family!
Thank you to those who sent in family pictures!!
Students compared pictorial quantities of 1 to 9 and identified which was greater and which was less. Students then compared the numerals 1 to 10 and determined which was greater.
We learned that when two numbers are compared on the number track, the greater number is always on the right.
On Friday, students compared lengths of objects and determined which objects were shorter and longer.
Please refer to the Module 4 Parent Letter for ideas on how to strengthen and support these new math skills at home. This letter was sent home on Thursday as well.
Module 4 Parent Letter - English
Module 4 Parent Letter - Spanish
Some magnetic things we discovered in our classrooms were scissors, paper clips, the white boards, and chair legs. Some non-magnetic things we discovered were table tops, chart paper, wooden furniture, and glass doors.
