snow Class News


     Here's a look at what we will be learning over the next few weeks:



    Reader's Workshop: We are putting our reading super powers together to read bigger and bigger books.  While the super heros read independently I will be working with small groups to hone our new skills.  Please encourage your child to point to each word as they read, rely on their "snap words", look closely at the pictures for help, and use their sound power to make the beginning sounds of the word. Reading together every night will help them meet their reading goals. I also encourage you to continue to read books to them.  This exposes them to vocabulary and story lines that are above their level.  Ask them about the sequence of events, problems/solutions, and character traits.  This will help them become better readers.


    Writer's Workshop:   We are working on a book about our school. We are using the word wall to spell our sight words correctly and then stretching out sounds to attempt to spell them.  Getting our thoughts on paper and enjoying it is our main goal.


    Fundations: As we have learned all the lowercase lettercase our attention will shift to the uppercase ones. We will also be using our letter sound knowledge to blend CVC (consonant,vowel,consonant) words like nap, mug, pit etc. Reviewing letter sounds and sight words nightly is helpful.  Our new  snap and sight words are: come, look, him, sit, get, got, mom, dad, his, as, has, did, had



    We are now in Topic 7 where we are learning about subtraction.  You can help at home by counting often with your child and pointing out the numbers all around us. We will continue to work on our addition facts daily by doing timed Fast Fact practice.


    Social Studies 

    We will be learning about our neighborhood and different types of communities.
