Math:    We are working with comparing and ordering numbers 0 to 5. Students have learned about terms such as more, fewer, and how to order numbers on a number line. They also will be practicing writing numbers to 5 and playing games that reinforce the concepts. The next unit with be working with numbers 6 to 10.

Reading/Literacy

We have studied the letters which go with each of the Superkids Cass, Oswald, Golly, Alf, Doc, Sal and Lily. This includes letter recognition, letter sounds, and letter writing.  They have been practicing identifying the beginning, middle and ending sounds in words, and blending those sounds. Try this at home with simple words like bus, bag, rug, etc. Students will be continuing to learn letters and can practice writing the alphabet at home! Continued practice with rhyming is also helpful!

 

Writing

 

Students have been writing as a response to prompts such as “When I am bigger”. They copy the prompt and then finish the sentence by sounding out the words they want to use.

 

Science

 

We finished the unit on patterns. We will soon be starting to explore force and motion. Students will be making inventions to learn about how force creates motion. 

 

Buddy class

 

Students have been enjoying meeting with their buddies from Mr. Bond’s class! They have been reading on a weekly basis!
