    • Topic 1

       December Events

      12/14 Winter Pageant 9:30-MHS

      12/18 Snow day for pageant

      12/21 School Spirit Day- pj's

      12/22-1/1 Winter Recess- no school

       This month we will practice identifying/writing upper and lowercase letters as well as their sounds.  We will learn about rhyming and syllables.

      We will also practice the first twenty words on the Fry Word List.

      In Reader's Workshop we will focus on book selection, reading independently and with a partner, and noticing the differences between fiction/non-fiction. 

      Please remember to read every night and return the reading folders to school each day.  Remind your children to look for sight words they have learned and to point under each word as they read!

      Although we are working on our fluency, it is very important that your child comprehends what he/she has read.  Try to talk to your children about each book when they are done reading.  Ask about the main idea ("This book was about.."), have them retell the story from beginning to end, find out what their favorite part was and why, and see if the book reminds them of another book or something from their own lives.   

       

      In Writer's Workshop, we will focus on writing "all about books."  Emphasis will be placed on drawing clear and detailed illustrations, labeling our pictures, and writing sentences. 

       

      In Math we will talk about

      numbers 1-10 and patterns.

      In Social Studies, we will concentrate on the holidays.  

      In Science we will learn about winter.

      The following words are from Lists 1, 2, and 3 of the Fry Word List.  The goal by June is to demonstrate mastery over these first 50 words; if your child is ready to continue on, please feel free to encourage that at home!  The more words the children  can retain, the better their fluency will be!  If you would like another copy of the complete word list, please let me know and I will make sure to send one home!
