Week of April 17-20, 2017
Reading: The story for the week is “The Little Engine That Could.” This classic fantasy is used to teach about the work done by trains. Students will identify plot in stories to build their comprehension skills. We will revisit the concept of nouns and learn about writing formal letters. The amazing words this week are: engine, passenger, mountain, tracks, roundhouse, and valley. The sight words featured include: what, said, and was.
Phonics: We will continue working on Uu with the initial and medial /u/ sound, as in umbrella and tub. Vv will also be introduced this week.
Math: Topic 9 (Composing and Decomposing Numbers to 10) will be tested this week. Please practice the plus and minus sign with your child. Also practice writing number sentences for addition and subtraction. After this test, we will continue composing the numbers 11-19 in Topic 10.
