JANUARY 20-24, 2020
Reading: This week’s story is a classic fable called “The Lion and the Mouse.” We will practice identifying the Main Idea (the important part of the story) in the story. The amazing words for the week include: jungle, nibbling, trembling, beast, snarled, and entangled. The sight words to focus are: they, you, and of. During the week we will also examine how to correctly write sentences. Children should know that a sentence is a complete thought. It starts with a capital letter, has spaces between words, and ends with a period.
Phonics: This week is a continuation of the /o/ sound, spelled with letter Oo. We will be practicing the short /o/ in the beginning, as well as the middle of words. We will also touch on some words with the long o sound made with a vowel-consonant-sneaky e pattern (ex. hole, code). Phoneme segmentation is also emphasized this week (breaking words into individual sounds- example: /c/, /a/, /t/ ).
Math: Unit 3 continues this week. This unit compares and orders numbers from 0 through 20. Remember to review concepts such as greater (more) and fewer (less), also practice counting backward (20, 19, 18, 17…) and putting numbers in correct order.
