This week we will be working on the letter sound /a/ as in apple, ant, and ax. The children will begin to develop the understanding of decoding simple words, such as, tam, mat, and am. As you are at home working you can show your child these letters and have them begin saying the sounds. You can place the letters m, a, and t on a card and mix them up and have your child say the appropriate sound. This is the beginning skill to decoding words. In addition, please continue to work on letter identification with your child. I am in the process of assessing the children and you will receive an updated copy of your child's letter and sound knowledge.
In math, we are continuing to work with
numbers up to 9. This past week your child did bring home Chapter 3
homework and their Chapter 2 test. Please review both of these with
your child. Children should be able to read and write the numbers to 9. In
addition, children should be able to compare the numbers (greater, more,
fewer, less). We will also be learning some new math games on Wednesday and Friday! I will be posting an update on the games we learned at the end of the week!
Here are a few pictures of some of our learning this past week...
I hope you have a great week!
