Ms. Quick's Class

December 4th, 2015

This week in Class...

Reading: We worked on the letter Dd and the sight words "can" and "this". We continued to work on stretching out the sounds in CVC words (ie cat, big, dad...). We have run into some troubles beginning to read because we are struggling to stretch out words. Please continue to practice letter sounds as well as stretching out words at home! The more practice we can give the children, the better off they will be!

Writing: The student are doing really well writing the sight words they know when they write but they sort of break down when asked to sound out a word they would like to write that they don't know how to spell. We will continue to work on it! This is also being seen in reading too as they have a big correlation.

Math: This week we worked on measuring length and classifying objects as short/shorter/shortest and long/longer/longest. We will be finishing this module early next week and starting module 5 after!

Science: We spent this week reading the many different versions of the Gingerbread Man. We read the Gingerbread Cowboy, Gingerbread Girl, Gingerbread Man, and Gingerbread Baby.
