Math

We are practicing counting money. Students are identifying the names and values of each coin and then adding up a combination of coins to show the sum. Here is a link to a site with several money games your child may enjoy for extra practice.


Within each unit, we will continue practicing problem solving skills with addition and subtraction word problems.


Students continue studying facts by heart. Our next fact quiz will be on 1/29.

*************************No quiz this week******************************


Students can practice addition facts on Quizlet to increase fact fluency. This site has interactive flashcards and games to help students learn facts by heart.

Language Arts

Students will review the the parts of a letter and students will select someone to write a Thank you note to. They will give three reasons why they like the gift that they received. This is a perfect time to practice after receiving gifts over the holidays. Here is a Letter Generator link where your child can type Thank you notes if they would like extra practice.


Students will continue to practice identifying the main idea and supporting details in their reading. We are discovering that this is more difficult to do with a multi-paragraph passage.


Students will study vowels followed by r: (ir as in bird) and (or as in worm) in Lesson 30. Spellingcity is a popular site to study.
