Here’s what’s happening in Mrs. Debra and Mrs. Sharon’s class:
READING & PHONICS:
We continue to learn to read using more complex vowel teams. Our ability to decode words is amazing. This allows us to increase our difficulty and accuracy in reading. Remember to have your child read his/her book each day and to write 2 words. Have them write more difficult words each time. Your child should be returning their books to school every day. Please work on the sight words as this also helps with fluency.
Current Sight Words:
I to a little is have the my she we he of
me look you they no orange red like with yes green
see black for likes yellow am you of one two three four
five go here from do was what said come where blue
During February we worked on identifying coins and began counting money. We will continue to work on counting coins throughout the rest of the year. At home try counting money using pennies, nickels, and dimes. We will soon move on to telling time to the hour and ½ hour.
Our class will be completing our study on America and begin a unit on Louisiana. In March we will celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday by reading some of his favorite books. We will also be studying about different means of transportation and will have lots of fun celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.
Our class will be making St. Joseph’s altars to celebrate his feast day. All boxes are due March 12 (refer to previous e-mail). We are also learning about Lent and preparing for Easter.
