Here’s what’s happening in Mrs. Debra and Mrs. Sharon’s class:
READING & PHONICS:
We will continue to review letter-sound identification and vowel teams this month with only a few new sounds added. This is to help the students become proficient in what they have learned and to strive for automaticity and fluency. The class is doing a great job of using their skills to decode words.
We will continue working in reading groups 3 times a week (schedule permitting) and are striving to complete independent activities. Have your child read to you each night when the book is brought home. Sign, date and write the name of the book and have them write 2 new words. It is very important that their books are returned each day!!! I know that many students can read through some of the stories quickly but we are also working on comprehension and writing skills along with higher order thinking skills.
Please make this a fun at home activity as the kids are very excited about reading. If at any time you have questions, feel free to contact me.
Current sight word List: I, a, the, me, my, have, yes, no, to, he, she, we, yellow, orange, red, black, for, is, with, like, likes, green, am, look, see, little, was.
MATH and SCIENCE:
In math we are counting to 100 and beyond by 1’s, 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s. We are very good at finding the number that comes before, after and between. Of course, we are also counting the days until Christmas. We continue to work on grouping by 10’s and counting on.
Our class has enjoyed regular visits to the science lab and loved playing at the new discovery tables. Check out the photos.
In December we are learning about Advent and waiting for the coming of Jesus. Each day we light the advent wreath and add to our Jesse Tree during our prayer service.
DID YOU KNOW? We have a kindness elf in our class? He encourages small acts of kindness at school and at home.
Class Wish List: Gift wrapping supplies for our Dramatic play center. Small boxes (jewelry boxes), bows, and tape.
