Math: We will continue to work on Chapter 5, Addition.
The children will continue to learn how to make addition sentences using manipulatives, pictures and number lines.
Phonemic Awareness: Identify On-Set & Rime, Ending Sounds & Blend CVC Words
Phonograms: The students have become excited about sounds! We are learning the Phonograms A-Z, which are phonograms #1 - 26. Some students know most of their sounds, others need to learn their sounds. So, we are reviewing all 26 phonograms each day and then each week we will focus on 2 different phonograms. This week we will be focusing on the phonograms for th (has two sounds, /th/ as in Thursday & /th/as in the) and oo(has two sounds, /oo/ as in boot & /oo/ as in look).
Word Lists: Word List 4
Make index cards with the vocabulary words on them. After your child can sound out and read the words, put them together in small phrases of your own to practice "reading" them. For example: put the cards : she said that next to each other in that order and have your child read it to you. The phrases they must read to me are just that, putting the words on the list together to make small phrases.
Reading Homework: Read and review the most current page of words in your child's sight word folder. For extra copies of the lists, click here SUPER Word Lists. Please do NOT write or allow your child to mark the list in the sight word folder. Print another list from the link above and mark on the extra list.
REMEMBER: Always review the words on the previous lists your child has completed. The words from previous lists are used to make phrases on the new list! They cannot forget the words they already learned.
