Reading-This week we met Camila in the informational text, My Family. Camila is a girl who shares special times and happy celebrations with her family. We also read Family Poetry. We discussed comparing and contrasting (telling how two things are alike and different), words with the short e, o, and u sound, complete sentences-(sentences that have a subject (who) and a predicate (action part) and sentences being in the right word order.
Math- We continued with Chapter 1 and reviewed expanded form and different names for numbers. Remember that expanded form is the sum of the value of the tens digit and the value of the ones digit. For example, 58 in expanded form would be 50+8. 143 in expanded form would be 100+40+3. Please review the math papers that we did in class with your child. It is great review and it gives you and your child the opportunity to work together. We will wrap up this chapter next week and take the test on Friday, September 15. Look for the study guide to come home on Thursday, September 14.
*Remember you can log into www.thinkcentral.com if your child is having difficulty with a concept. There are videos on the website that show you step-by-step instructions. **This past week we reviewed Chapter 1, Lessons 4, 5, and 6 if you are trying to look up the lessons online**
Spelling- Our words this week had the short e, u, and o sound. Next week we will have the pre-test on Monday, September 11 and the post test on Friday, September 15.
