​Keep Saving your Box Tops! boxtop.png
 Send in as many as you can!  We do collect Box Tops and Tyson Chicken Labels.  For each 10 that your child brings in they get one Monkey Money Dollar!  They are very helpful in raising money to get extra supplies in the classroom.  It also helps to buy Treasure Box items when needed.

Language Arts/Phonograms
​​We are learning letter sounds using the Really Great Reading program. Each week there will be a list of Vocabulary words in the middle of the red folder that your child will be expected to practice and be able to read to me. We will start out slow with 5 words a week and as your child becomes a better reader, we will increase at each student's individual pace. ​I will start checking vocabulary words this week.  I will highlight the words that they can read to me. These vocabulary words are very important to build their reading vocabulary and to expand those words each week.​  ​Use the website link to the right to find Phonogram ​Cards and Phonogram Facts which has sample sound pronunciation. 
  • ​​We know that letters make sounds.
  • We can recognize, name and write uppercase and lowercase letters correctly, using 3 lines.      
  • We will be able to identify a noun and write a sentence using a noun.  
  •  We will write a sentence using ​an ADJECTIVE ​ to describe the noun in our sentence.                                                                                                             


 I will introduce five words each week and they will be marked on their word list in the red folder.   Please do not write on the paper.  ​New pages will be added as we master the page in the Binder.  Please be patient, I have 18 students to read the words to me and it takes time to give them each their turn. :-)​​

  • We will be able to read the words on our vocabulary list.
  • We will be able to tell who the characters are in a story.
  • ​We will be able to tell the setting of the story​.
  • We will be able to recall details from a story to answer questions.

We will begin with writing our names PROPERLY, using an uppercase letter at the beginning and all lowercase afterward, as well as paying attention to the size of each letter. Remember, we use Zaner-Bloser handwriting. We will be tracing all of the letters to get the feel of the proper strokes and ensuring proper pencil holding techniques - Pinch the pencil at the edge of the yellow with your thumb and pointer, do not grip too tightly, let the pencil lay back in the crook of your thumb and pointer. You should also always hold the paper with your other hand to ensure no extra movement of the paper while writing.

Update:  We have been using Write Bright writing activities to learn how to write proper sentences.  We are now going to "stretch" our sentences to add adjectives to describe what we are writing about.  Then we will progress to knowing what a verb's purpose is in a sentence.
