Spelling/Phonics– This week we will have our first spelling test on Friday. Every other week we will have a spelling test and the off weeks we will have some sort of phonics lesson. Last week we reviewed and discussed nouns. Also, when we have a spelling test we will have 5 new words and the rest of the words will be review words that are posted on our word wall. Then the next time we have a spelling test those last 5 words will go on the word wall and they will get 5 more new words. Here are this week’s words.
New words: go, much, back, through, get
Review words: they, have, what, there, which, been, now little, called
Reading– We are learning how to make inferences while we are reading a passage. You make an inference when you use clues from the story plus what you already know to figure out something that the author doesn’t directly tell you.
Math– We are learning the value of each coin and how to count a mixture of coins. Please practice skip counting by 5’s and 10’s, especially in the middle of counting numbers.
Ex. 25,30, 35, 40
30, 40, 50, 60
Most students know how to skip count by 5’s and 10’s when starting at the beginning but find it difficult when starting in the middle.
Scholastic Book Order
I sent home with your child today a Scholastic Book order. It is not due till Monday, October 2. If everyone gets their order in before the due date, I may send the order in sooner. I have attached a letter with all the information about who to make the checks to and about how you can order on-line using our class code printed on the letter and order form.
