This week we will be continuing with our Reading Street program and reading The Lion and the Mouse. We will be focusing on the main idea (or theme) of a story this week. We will also continue to work on blending words. This is one of the areas where we need to continue to concentrate on. I have noticed students know their sounds, but they are not fluent with the sounds enough to blend the words. Our sight words will remain the same this week (they, of, you). Please take some time to review all of the sight words nightly for about 5 minutes. This is important and will help with your child become fluent in reading.
This week in math we are continuing our work on subtraction. I did notice some confusion with addition and subtraction and a few children getting these two skills mixed up. Please continue to work on this skill throughout the week. We will be working with subtraction with various manipulatives...food works great and so do coins! In addition, please make sure you allow your children to do the writing. We want you to help your child with the learning; however, it is important for them to do the work.
We go to book fair this week on Wednesday and Thursday at 12:00! It should be a great time!
Have a great week!
