What's New This Week?
In Lesson 8, our Essential Question this week is “How do you know what a story is mostly about?” Target skills are main ideas, details, and visualizing. Phonics skills this week will focus on consonant digraphs (ch/sh/wh/ch/tch/ph) and base words and endings (-s, -ed, -ing).
In writing we will begin to learn about writing to inform.
We will begin topic 5 on MONEY this week. Money can be challenging. It is most helpful to practice counting money in everyday experiences, such as paying for something at a store.
** If your child has any difficulty with the homework, it would be helpful to go on the Pearson website for review of the lesson. Go to the upper right “TO DO” and they can go through the exact lesson from the day. As always, First in Math provides great practice with basic addition and subtraction facts. As our concepts will continue to become more challenging, this practice at home is especially helpful.
