This week on Wednesday I will be testing students on the TPRI and checking reading, sight words, and their phonological knowledge.
In Reading this week we will read two different stories. For the first couple of days we will read "Jamaica's Blue Marker" and discuss parts of a book such as the author, illustrator, cover, title, pages, etc. Then the last part of the week we will read "A Fine, Fine Day" and notice features of words. We will also practice rhyming words that end in the short i sound. Rhyming is a difficult skill even for advanced readers, so please create rhyming words for the words listed on the newsletter. We will identify and write subjects of a sentence; We will read poems "Five Little Mice" and "Hickory Dickory Dare" and highlight specific words that we hear in the poem.
In Math we will work on numbers up to 20 using Place Value. For example students will learn that 19 is 1 ten and 9 ones. We will use base ten blocks and other manipulatives to build the numbers.
In Social Studies we will continue our unit on rules. We will discuss creating order. We will learn about authority figures and why we have rules in our community.
We will start Science lessons after we complete this Social Studies unit on rules. We rotate Science and Social Studies.

Our class got to exercise their fine motor skills by building with Legos, we played games on the Ipads, made words with playdough, and read books in our reading center. Finally CISD personnel director caught us just as we were coming inside from recess. We've had a very busy and productive week!
