Phonemic Awareness skills: initial sounds, letter recognition, rhyming, and blending with syllables. We will focus on onset and rime blending. Working with ending sounds.
We are continuing with our writing journal where students are able to illustrate and create sentences. Students are adding more detail to both their illustrations and writing. Students are asked to write more than one sentence and are encouraged to use their sight words.

Chapter 5: Addition - Test
Rules of Number Sentences
As children first learn to read and write addition number sentences, it is important that they know a few basic rules about addition sentences:
1. It must have a plus sign (+)
2. It must have an equal sign (=)
3. The number (or numbers) on one side of the equal sign must have the same value as the number (or numbers) on the other side of the equal sign.
Composting and Decomposing Numbers
An important aspect of learning about numbers to 10 is to understand how to compose and decompose these numbers. Composing and decomposing a number are similar -- and often misunderstood -- mathematical concepts. "Composing" a number means to put two numbers together to make a number with the same value. "Decomposing" a number means to take a number apart to make two numbers with the same total value.
The Ten Frame
It is a common model to represent 10. The two rows of 5 make it easy to understand and visualize. Other models can and should also be used, however, to help children begin to see ten ones as a single group of ten-something created by joining 10 separate things into a new whole. Other possible models are 10 snap cubes put together in a ten tower, 10 dots grouped to form a single unit of 10, or in a more abstract form, a long line that represents 10 strip or rod. To use these tools, children must understand how the model connects to written numerals.

Students will each have a "Lenten Good Deeds Chart". Each time Mrs. Ivette or myself witness a student doing a good deed, they are able to fill in their worksheet. Our goal is to have our stain glass windows full by the end of Lent.
