This Week's Lessons
Writing-Opinion Writing-students will be finishing up their opinion pieces on their favorite fairytale. This will be a summative evaluation of what your child has learned about opinion writing this quarter. We will then work in our December journals and do some fun winter holiday writing.
Reading-We will read a few holiday/winter storing and practice retelling what we have read. Please continue reading most days over the break. I will include a January reading goal and color sheet. Please turn the December sheet in when we return from break.
Spelling/Phonics- No new spelling words due to the short week.
Sight Words-no new sight words, but I am happy to report that 100% of students in our class met the grade level goal of knowing at least 52/64 first and second quarter sight words!!
Math-Topic 7-Counting and Patterns to 120. Topic 7 Test on Tuesday. Please have your child take the online test as a review.
