Weekly Newsletter Week 34 April 24th – April 27th Dear Parents,
Our focus phonograms for this week are: ch ti si ea ou oe ei ey sh wr dge ci ur ui ew e t qu l m
The spelling words for this week are from LIST 14 and are as follows: get, home, much, call, long, love, then, house, year, to. The review words are as follows: ball, stands, sea, you, good. Please continue to work with the spelling words in sentences, both orally and in writing sentences. This practice will help them to become more confident in creating sentences. Please remember that you should be reading each night with homework. We only have a few more weeks to turn in reading logs.
In math, our final goal for report cards in counting is to be able to count to 120 with ease and understanding. Some children have already accomplished this goal. For those who still need some practice, this is an area in which parents can help to prepare a child. As you drive from place to place, have your child begin to count. Help with any transition numbers, and practice until your child is proficient. We will soon begin assessing any child who has not passed this benchmark on report cards. We will also continue to work on addition of doubles to help us with the subtraction of halves. We are reviewing all concepts learned to prepare us for the Fourth Quarter Math Assessment.
Make sure your child knows their April poem, as I will be assessing them this week.
In extended day, Spring is still in the air, and birds are the focus of our attention.
The weather is warming up, so please remember to send a POP-TOP water bottle each day. The water bottles that have screw tops or flip-tops seem to spill every day on my carpet or on your child’s desk.
4th Quarter Progress Reports will go home this Wednesday along with your child’s final DIBELS results. Please sign and return the Progress Report and envelope ASAP and I will send a copy home for you.
Lastly, please see the Summer Skills attachment. The office has examples of books for your perusal.
