Week of February 19-23, 2018
A week full of celebrations!
Reading: “One Little Mouse” is our story for the week. This is an animal fantasy that answers the question “What adventures can animals have?” Story sequence will be stressed in these lessons. The amazing words presented are: woodland, vale, comfortable, nest, hollow, and shadows. The targeted sight words are: one, two, three, four, and five. We will also learn what parts are needed in a sentence to make it complete.
Phonics: Consonant blends will be introduced this week. The students will learn how to blend two sounds together in a word. (ex. /s/ and /l/ together make a /sl/ sound, as in slide.
Math: Topic 6 (Numbers on a hundred chart) will be tested this week. The skills included are counting and writing numbers, counting groups of 10, counting by 2’s, looking for patterns on a hundred chart, and estimating about how many. Topic 7 will also be introduced. The goal of this topic is to understand addition. We will use stories showing how to join groups and count how many items there are altogether. The plus and equal sign will be used to write addition sentences.
~ Please review sight words daily. Also practice counting by 1’s, 2’s, and 10’s. Students are expected to count to 100!
~Don’t forget to log the books you are reading. 15 is the goal for each month.
