Mrs. Seeley's Weekly Stats

April 4-8

Boosterthon Fun Run


There are two elements that make up the process of reading comprehension: vocabulary knowledge and text comprehension. This week I will highlight text comprehension. In addition to being able to understand each distinct word in a text, the child also has to be able to put them together to develop an overall conception of what it is trying to say. This is text comprehension. Text comprehension is much more complex and varied that vocabulary knowledge. Readers use many different text comprehension strategies to develop reading comprehension. These include monitoring for understanding, answering and generating questions, summarizing and being aware of and using a text’s structure to aid comprehension.

Phonics - This week we will focus on the short and long a sounds .


This week we will start a book on animals of the ocean. We will focus on a fantastic beginning, interesting facts, and a fabulous ending. We will also include a table of contents, bolded words, a glossary, and an index.


This week we will work on word problems that compare with the difference unknown. We will also be working on math fact fluency. Our end of the year goal is to be able to solve basic addition and subtraction facts to 10 with 19 or more problems completed within a minute with 95% accuracy. Practicing the math fact fluency cards that came home in the homework folder will really help your child to commit these to memory .

Social Sciences

This week we will continue studying fish and other animals from the ocean.
