Week Of February 1st

Highlights from last week....

We hope you all had a great weekend.

We worked on what kinds of food grows on a farm. We learned the letter F and R and the sight words he and with.

In Math, we worked on comparing numbers using more, less, and the same.

A peek at our learning this week....

This week will be a busy week of learning!

This week our class will be focusing on the four seasons and how they are different. Children will also be reading stories and poems about the weather in each season.

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

Word Workout

  • Vocabulary: weather, seasons Discuss the four seasons and describe how the weather is similar or different, depending on where you live. Then invite your child to draw a picture of each season.
  • My Words to Know

High-Frequency Words: is, little Write the words is and little on paper, then have your child do the same. Describe the weather you see outside today. Use the words is and little and record them on paper.

Category Words: seasons Display some of the clothing that your child wears in each of the four seasons. Ask your child to identify the season during which the clothing is worn.

Phonics: b, l Invite your child to search for objects that begin with the letter b and the letter l. Write the names of the objects on sticky notes. Have your child stick the labels on each item.

Comprehension: key details in a sequence

In Math, we will finish Module 3 and take our unit assessment.
