Language Workshop & Literacy
In reading we continue to build upon our "read to self" reading stamina. Our goal for the year is to get to 30 minutes. We are currently working on 20 minutes of read to self time. Please continue to read for 15-20 minutes at home each day to help support building this stamina. We also learned about contractions, suffixes and prefixes.
In phonics we are working on blend and digraph sounds. In writing we are focusing on nonfiction topics. Students are teaching others about things they are experts o. We are also do "How To" books where students are writing the steps to do something they are experts on.
We will be doing our Friendship Party on Friday, February 12th. If students are interested in exchanging Valentines, they will need to bring one for everyone in the class. Valentines MUST be at school by Monday, February 8th in order to give them enough time to sit before we exchange and open them. All students must have a bag or can decorate their own Valentine box to bring their Valentines home. When addressing your valentines...leave the "To" blank and fill in only the "From" section. Makes passing valentines much easier. Thanks!
Digital Citizenship and Internet Safety
This week and next, we will complete a unit on Digital Citizenship and Internet Safety, where we will be completing lessons about how to be safe, responsible and respectful on the internet and apps we use in class.
