Weekly News For Jan. 16th - 20th, 2017

Dear Families:

 January is quickly flying by and our words are piling up – we are at the end of list 3 (60 words!!)  Keep working on them until they are all automatic!

 What we are learning:

 Literacy - This week we will review all List 3 words and phrases.  Our reading strategy for the month of January will be encouraging students to be become “engaging readers” - being mindful of how to be an effective reader (eyes on your book, reading the whole time and thinking about what you have read). 

Math –Review addition of +3 and +4 strategy and introduce doubles (1+1, 2+2, 3+3, etc.) and review counting from 0-50 by 1s, counting back from 20, counting by 2s to 20 as well as counting by 5s and 10s to 50.   

You and Your World - We will discuss natural and constructed features of our environment.

 Information Items/Dates to Remember:

 It may seem early but . . . Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.  We will be having a Valentine exchange on Tuesday, February 14th.  Students are welcome to make or buy Valentine cards for their classmates.  Class lists will be heading home by the end of the month.


·       It is imperative that your child read a good fit book and practice sight words and phrases each night to strengthen reading strategies learned at school.  This is the time of the year in Grade One where students can make great gains in their reading if they practice!

·        Review List 3 words and phrases.

·       For Math, take notice of 3D objects at your home!  Please continue to work on counting on strategies for (+0, +1, +2, +3, +4).J 

    As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me at school, send a note in your child’s communication bag, or send an e-mail.
