Here are some things that might be helpful for you to chow about what we have been doing in school lately.
We have already reviewed the closed vowel sounds for a (apple) e (egg) i ( pig) and o (odd)
We learned about the "H Brothers": sh, ch, wh, and th (consonant digraphs)
In math, we have begun a new unit which involve adding numbers with sums greater than ten. The first strategy the students work with is to "make ten" with the addends and then see how much more to make the teen number. It helps if they can draw the numbers they are adding together, each addend with a different thing such as circles, solid dots, and Xs. They will be working on making organized drawings, in rows of 5, so they can more easily see when they have a ten.
I realize that the math program is different and sometimes very strange, but it really works in the long run. Please send me a note on the homework, if ever you have a question or concern. You can always send me a Class Dojo message too.
In science the children started working with motion, and last week they made tops, and today, zoomers that spin on a string.
We have been reading stories with animals as the characters and working on writing about something they already know.
