May 22 – 26
Learning Objective: Students will be able to actively engage in group reading activities with purpose and understanding. They will be able to use reading strategies to read texts.
This week, we learned that we should not take breaks at the end of each line but instead by using phrases and periods. We practiced this by ‘scooping up’ words in the sentence and reading the fluently (not like a robot). We learned that sometimes ‘when two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking’. We practiced vowel teams ‘ee & ea’.
Learning Objective: Students will be able to write capital letters properly and hold a pencil correctly by themselves.
This week we continued handwriting practice with lowercase letters. We continued to identify which words are small, tall, or go below the line. We learned how to write e, l, k, y, j, p, and r properly. Please practice at home!
Students are expected to hold their pencils ‘properly’ using one of the two techniques below. Please encourage your child to hold their pencils, crayons, etc. like this at home too.
Learning Objective: Students will be able to represent teen number decompositions as 10 ones and some ones, 275 and find a hidden part; decompose teen numbers as 10 ones and some ones; compare some ones to compare the teen numbers; reason about and represent situations, decomposing teen numbers 288 into 10 ones and some ones and composing 10 ones and some ones into a teen number; and decompose teen numbers as 10 ones and some ones; compare some ones to compare the teen numbers.
