What we worked on in class last week:

Reading: We read different literature to help us build a community of caring and learning. We worked on identifying the main idea and supporting details. We sequenced events and we compared and contrasted characters. 

Math: We worked with attributes of 2D shapes, quadrilaterals, and polygons. Our favorite part was building shapes using dough and toothpicks. We also like playing the headband game, " Can you guess the shape?"

Writing: We wrote about different emotions and what makes a good friend. 

Grammar: We were introduced to identifying proper and common nouns. 

Problem Solving Wheel: We read a story called, What do you do with a Problem?
The child in the story had a problem that continued to grow until it was a huge storm swirling inside of him. We talked this week about different strategies that people use to help keep their problems for growing so huge we feel sad and hopeless.  A copy of the problem solving wheel was sent home for you to review with your child if you wish.

Spelling Words Q1W2

High Frequency Words and Sight Words

These are words that occur most often in written materials. They usually have little meaning on their own, but they contribute to the meaning of a sentence. The best way to learn to read them is by repeated practice, this will help your child with reading fluency. You may see some of these words duplicated in the spelling words. This is to help emphasize the importance of these words.
