Writing/Spelling: New spelling words are it, is, in, you, that. These are in addition to last week. SO there is a total of 10 words. and, to, of, the, a, in, you, is, that, it. Spelling test will be on NEXT Tuesday, September 12. Your child will be responsible for all spelling words for the remainder of the year. We need to know how to read, write, and spell all these words to help with reading writing. Also, knowing these words will better prepare us for 2nd grade! Please look for the new words today in the planner. We will be exploring our own writing this week through the writing process.
Math: We will continue to work on one-to-one correspondence while working with our math tools: This week we concentrate on number line and number path. We will also be using intentional problem solving to find answers to some math questions involving addition.
We will continue our study of Kevin Henkes books and find the lesson learned in each.
I hope you all have had a great Labor Day weekend!
