Here’s what’s happening in Mrs. Debra and Mrs. Sharon’s class:
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.
During February we worked on identifying coins and counting money. We will continue to work on counting coin combinations as it is a difficult skill for the students to master. 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 is finishing our unit on Louisiana and will be completing our study on American. 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. Thanks to everyone who has been sending donations for the prize box. It is greatly needed.
Our class will be making St. Joseph’s altars to celebrate his feast day. All boxes are due March 9 (refer to previous e-mail). We are also learning about Lent and preparing for Easter.
