Ms. MacDougall's Fridge Facts
High Frequency Words (cannot be sounded out): here, don't, from
This week we focused on contractions and how to read and write them. We said that a contraction is two words that smush together to make one word. Also a letter or letters are kicked out and an apostrophe is added in. Some examples of contractions are don't, can't, and won't. The class also discussed how to read like a star. We practiced scooping up our words, changing our voices when a character talks, and sounding out words slowly.
We also have some exciting news. Our pill bugs, snails, guppies, and bess beetles have come in! Over the next few weeks we will be making observations in our science notebooks, discuss what living things need, and figure out what an organism is. As a class we named the six bess beetles. Their names are Bob, Billy, Mr. Mustache Man, Cynthia, Biggy, and Super Hero.
