Each week, I will be posting the skills that will be taught throughout the week in Language Arts, Math, and other subject areas. Kindly, review the skills as it will help you to also reinforce these skills at home. I will usually update my webpage on Sundays.
*** Please make sure to write your child’s name on the tag of his/her sweatshirt. If you are missing a sweatshirt, please let me know. I have 2 that no one is claiming. Thanks so much!
LANGUAGE ARTS – On Friday, the children took the Progress 1 Skill Test. They did a GREAT JOB! Look for it in the green folder. They also met the new Superkid, Alf. Alf loves to go on adventures. He will help the children learn about the letter /Aa/ and its short vowel sound. They will learn to correctly write the upper and lower case /Aa/. They will also associate and identify the short /a/ sound at the beginning and middle part of a picture name. Other skills that will be taught include: drawing conclusions from pictures, generating ideas before writing, dictating a story ending for an adventure, and distinguishing between the short vowels /o/ and /a/. The children will also be working in Halloween Centers. The centers include: Reading, Writing, Math, Art, and Listening. At each center, the children will be reinforcing the skills that have already be taught in each subject area. Working at centers will also help the children work independently and enhance work habit skills.
Please continue to practice your child’s name. If you would like a few more sheets of “ice cream” paper, I will be happy to send some home with your child.
MATH – The children will be taking the Chapter 2 Test sometime this week . Chapter 3 will be introduced. This chapter will focus on how to count,write,and decompose numbers 6 to 9. This week, the children will represent and model numbers 6 and 7 using objects to count and write the numbers. They will also use a ten frame and chips to decompose these numbers. Example: 3+3=6, 4+2=6, 5+1=6
