What We're Learning This Week!

Math: In math we will continue our unit over sums and differences to 10. In this unit, students will be learning how to count on, decompose numbers, and how to find an unknown addend using subtraction. If you have access to addition and subtract flash cards with in 10, these would be a great tool to support fluency. Here is a link for an online resource for addition to 9.

Fundations: We will continue our unit over tapping or sounding out CVC words or words with three sounds. Example: cat, bat, cup, tap.

Reading: Please continue to read nightly with your child. Reading is a great night time routine and has a huge impact on a child's learning. Online resource link for reading.

Writing: We will continue our first writing unit. We are working on writing a complete sentence using a capital letter at the beginning of the sentence, writing neatly with spaces between words, punctuation at the end of a sentence, and writing a complete thought. Students will continue to build on these skills throughout the school year.
