Review sight words: said, good, was, then,ate, could, she, when, all, over, her, some.
Essential Question:How do things change when someone is growing up?What steps can someone follow to plant and grow flowers? We will be reading informational texts and poetry . Take time to look and talk about writings that are coming home. Your children are learning to start their letters at the top. About capital letters at the beginning of sentences and periods at the end of the sentence. Talk about reading left to right as you read the books sent home in their reading folder.
We will be reviewing writing and recognizing our name and those of our classmates. When practicing writing names remember these two rules.
1. Always start writing at the top of the line and bump on the bottom line.
2. Begin with a capital letter and use lowercase letters for the remainder of your name.
We will be learning about letter X,x, J,j, E,e, reading rate, medial sounds and blending phonemes, antonyms, and proper nouns for days and months.
Extra practice and stories are available on the Thinkcentral website.
