Reading: Unit 5 begins this week. The theme is “How do people and things get from here to there?”The first story is an animal fantasy called “Max Takes the Train.” It will teach realism and fantasy while discussing different types of transportation. The students will have some practice with sentences that ask questions. The amazing words are: plane, jetway, subway, tunnel, ferryboat, and sidecar. The sight words are: yellow, blue, and green.
Phonics: All letters and sounds are practiced in words daily. This week’s focus is on two letters: Jj and Ww. We will work with the /j/ sound, as in jaguar; along with the /w/ sound, as in watermelon.
Math: We are continuing to work on subtraction this week. We are using manipulatives to act out separating stories, taking away, comparing groups that have more or fewer, using the minus sign, finding differences, and subtraction sentences.
~ Please remember to practice sight words daily. The goal is to learn 96 words! Many children are getting very close to this goal. Some students are already practicing the 1st grade list. Thank you for your help!
