What are we Learning?


We are practicing our letters and sounds.

We are learning different ways to read a book: tell a familiar story, look at the pictures to tell a story, read the words

Practice: knowing the difference between letters, words, and sentences

Challenge: writing words that start with the letter/sound of the day. Try writing sentences with these words!


We are learning to compare our numbers using greater than, less than or equal to.

Practice: writing, identifying and ordering numbers to 20, counting to 100 by 1s and 10s, greater than, less than, or equal to

challenge: counting to 120 by 1s and 10s, writing/identifying/ordering numbers to 30


We are going to start talking about the "I am from..." projects you've completed. We are going to listen to music from each country and find it on a map. I will also share your fun facts!

Practice: The country I live in, the state I live in, the city I live in
