Dear Parents,                           

 

Here are some highlights since the last newsletter-  

We:

  • Focused on these skills for writers’ workshop:
    • Write two or more sentences
    • Use mostly lowercase letters
    • Use beginning and ending sounds
    • Spell sight words correctly
    • Use spaces between words

 

 

Ø  Played new games in math that included adding and subtracting in a variety of ways.

  • Showed what we have learned for end of the trimester assessments.
  • Focused on knowledge and awareness that good readers have and the things they do. We:

 

o     Read, wrote and illustrated our new sight words.

o     Listened to Dr. Seuss read-aloud stories and talked about his birthday.

o     Discussed and practiced our reading strategies and added new strategies.

o     Worked on iPads to work on our reading skills.

o     Engaged in word work activities: play dough sight words, writing word lists, writing sentences and drawing pictures to match, typing….the list goes on!
