January 4-8, 2016 Week 17

Happy New Year!  Welcome back everybody! We had a great day everyone was bright-eyed and bushy tailed!  I'm sorry that our blog is a little late. I was slow getting back into "school" mode!  But now the switch is back on! 

This week we will read "The Class Pet."  It is a story about a real class that has mice as pets. Our reading skills are to blend and read words with plural -es; identify fact and opinion; read words with r-controlled vowels; identify adjectives; and practice our daily Saxon Phonics.

In Math we will continue working with numbers up to 99.  We have been working on this skill for several weeks because it includes composing numbers, decomposing numbers, skip counting, place value, greater than, less than, equal to, and many more skills.

In Science we will learn about the different forms of water.  We will learn about rivers, streams, lakes, and oceans.  We will discuss freshwater and salt  water.

In Social Studies we will learn about historical figures and what they contributed to society.  We will discuss how their contributions shaped our country.

Please keep reading and practicing spelling and sight words every night.  If you are able, please help your child take AR tests at home.  This is a great way to check their reading comprehension skills. 

When our basal reading story is long, please partner read the story with your child or you can even read it to them, then afterwards discuss the questions at the end of the story. Remember that listening to a story is allowing your child to hear a story read aloud to them which is good for young readers.  Please always ask them story questions to make the reading meaningful.
