We also did a cold read of our new story called "Lucia's Neighborhood." In Language we began adjectives and will do several activities this week! In Math we began subtraction with pictures showing "taking away." Math tests from Friday will be coming home this week! Great job!

Classroom News

Week of September 18th- 22nd


Important Dates:


Monday 9/18- Spelling Pretest; STAR student begins this week

Tuesday 9/19- High Frequency Words Test

Friday 9/22- Spelling Test, Reading Test (comp, vocab, phonics)


Our Learning:


Reading- Our new story this week is called “Lucia’s Neighborhood.” We will focus on text and graphic features, our vocabulary/high frequency words, along with comprehension.


Language- Students will be introduced to what an adjective is.


Spelling- Students will learn the sound and spelling for words with short e, and consonants y, w, k, v, and j. We are also starting challenge words this week! IF students pass their pretest on Monday, they will get a 100% in the gradebook for their test and will not take the final test on Friday. They will then be given a list of challenge words. They can study these words for Friday’s test. I will give them a spelling test on the challenge words, but this will not count towards their grade. Consider it to be extra practice! J


Math- We wrapped up chapter 1 and our moving right into chapter 2 where we will learn subtracting concepts. Students will use pictures to show taking from, model taking from, taking apart, and use problem solving to model subtraction. These are the first 4 lessons in chapter 2!

Students are doing an amazing job in class. Keep reviewing the concepts that we have already learned. Things like what a noun is, possessive noun, and a verb. We will continue to come back to this. Continue working on spelling and sounding sounds out. It is a great idea to read every night; 10-20 minutes a night will help tremendously. Practice daily math. Recognizing numbers and if you child is ready, begin math addition flash cards! We will be starting math and guided reading centers in the next couple of weeks. Thanks for all that you do!
