We are continuing to learn and explore new things in our classroom. It is very exciting to see how your children continue to progress in all content areas. This month of February we will learn many things. In Language Arts we will continue to learn about Story Elements (setting, characters, problem, and solution), fiction, and making connections to our reading. Also opinion writing. In Social Studies we will learn about presidents, needs and wants, and community helpers. In Science, we will learn about matter. Math is full of excitement! We will revisit number sense, numbers 0-15. Also, we will continue exploring graphing, measuring tools such as a thermometer, a scale, and a clock, tally marks, and ordinal numbers. Please make sure to review these concepts at home.
Please make sure your child counts to 100, counts by 5s and 10s, identifies coins and their value, recognizes all the shapes (circle, triangle, rectangle, and square), knows the sight words we sent home, and knows all letters and sounds. Please make sure your child knows how to write his/her name and last name correctly. Continue practicing writing small stories and make sure your child starts with capital letter, leave spaces between words, and put a period at the end of the sentence. Please read everyday and ask questions about the story to develop comprehension.
Important: study the weekly sight words.
