We are learning coins next week!
You can work on this skill at home by talking with your kids about the coins in your purse and see if they can identify them! Talk about the features of each coin and how they can remember the names.
Our classroom is part of the blended learning program here at Austin and this week we got our Macbooks out and started learning how to use them.
SUPER IMPORTANT: Guided Reading Folders and Books!
Inside this folder is a list of sight words to practice at home, as well as a list of reading strategies to help your child when they get stuck on a word.
Also, there will be leveled books inside the folder. That means that I have purposely chosen this book for your child based on their reading level. There may be one book, or two, it just depends on the week. These books are to STAY in the folder when you aren't reading them! They must be returned back to school.
I am going to do my best to make sure folders and books come home on MONDAYS.(sometimes it can be very difficult to get through all reading groups and Tuesdays may be the day they are brought home). I am asking your child to keep the folder in their backpack all week and for them to READ THE BOOKS AT HOME each night! These books may seem easy for them- and that's okay! We have already read these books in the classroom with me in their reading group. They are taking them home to show you what they learned and to build their reading confidence.
Folders and books need to be returned on FRIDAYS!! I will do my best to remind you. If they are returned on Friday, I have the time over the weekend to switch out the books and get what your child needs. Please please help your child with this responsibility.
In math we have been using number bonds to compose and decompose numbers.
Thank you for collecting leaves for us! We were about to sort them and learn all the different characteristics of leaves.
