We hope you all
have a safe, healthy and happy holiday. We look forward to seeing our students
back at school on Tuesday, January 10th. Monday, January 9th
is a professional learning day for teachers.
What we are
Literacy - This week we will introduce the next
five words on List 3 (get, them, like, one, this). Our reading strategy for the
month of December will be to look at the beginning sound of an unknown word and
get our mouth ready to say that sound.
We will also continue to practice the letter sounds “ou/ow” (mouse/cow)
and introduce the sound “ue” (blue/clue).
Math – We will continue to review +0/+1/+2 and +3 this week (the
strategy that the children have learned is to find the greatest number and
You and Your World - We will continue to discuss the difference
between needs and wants as well as learn about one another’s traditions.
