Haffer's Happenings

January 11, 2016

Welcome Back! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

Please remember to send coats, hats, gloves, etc with your child each day. They will go out to recess unless the windchill is extreme.

Phonics/Sight Words

Sight Words- This weeks words are all, saw, help.

Phonics- We will be reviewing short vowels.


This week we will begin a unit of study on Community Helpers. We will work on making predictions, asking and answering questions about key details in a text, making connections and finding the main idea and details of a text.


Our writing will focus on informational writing. The children will be writing to give information about different community helpers and the jobs they do. Children will need to use correct spacing between words, use sight words correctly in their writing, write complete sentences about a given topic, and use correct capitalization and punctuation.


We will begin Topic 8 which focuses on subtraction. The children will be introduced to the concept of subtraction and be using the terms take away and minus. Look for the Home/School Connection sheet to come home on Monday.
