Reading- We continued working on sight word memorization this week. We learned about long and short vowel sounds. We applied our letter knowledge this week to tapping and spelling simple consonant-vowel-consonant words this week. We are working hard to hear the middle sound and choose the correct vowel as well as use correct letter formation as we spell. Reading groups are going well. Each group works on skills the children need to work on to become better readers like predicting, retelling the story, tapping words, practicing sight words, review letter names and sounds, and using picture clues to figure out unknown words.
Writing- We worked on stretching out or tapping words to make sure we write a letter for every sound we hear in the word. We continued to practice writing sentences with a capital at the beginning, words, word spaces, and punctuation.
Math: We continued building our number sense by playing games with 10 frames and breaking apart the number 10 into various combinations. We continue to practice counting skills. We got to start using our math books this week and will have more written work in math.
Science/ Social Studies- We enjoyed a Mystery Science video about if animals can laugh! We continued learning about weather. Mrs. Davison taught us about growth mindset and how our brains need to be challenged to learn!
