Hello!. I will continue posting newsletters monthly on the class website (on the newsletter tab). Please check the site for the calendar of events & news. Listed below is an outline of work we completed for the weeks through January.
In reading, we continue to practice reading early emergent-late emergent books in class. We have been practicing using reading strategies when reading: using picture clues (eagle eye), touching the words when reading & thinking if it makes sense (when stuck on a word). Students continue to build on their sight word knowlege- they did great on their 25 word assessment! We are also working on retelling story elements & saying something about what we are reading. Please continue to send in book baggies every Friday.
In writing, we working on writing words and stretching the sounds to write words. Students are writing patterned books on things they like or can do. Our next challenge is to write 2-3 sentences on a page. We will continue working on writing pattern and narrative stories for the next few weeks.
We are studying on measurement & 2D & 3D shapes. We will explore with the 100 item collections next week in class.
Fundations & Word Work
We are working on uppercase letter formations & continue to review lower case letter formations. We are working on cvc words, short & long vowel words and stretching out words to write them.
We are up to 37 sight words! Keep it going! The children are doing great with their sight words!!
In Science, we completed our unit on weather and are now working on forces - push & pull.
