Mrs. Borden and Mrs. Jones’ Newsletter (Week of December 10)
Handwriting/Writing: We are moving through Unit 4- More Vowels, Transition Group, and Words and Sentences and then will move into the last part (diver letters, final group, and writing activities) before moving into all writing activities. We are so impressed with how our class is trying to chop out the sounds in words and write the letters when writing! Keep up the good work everyone!
Reading: Our new story is: George Washington Visits and it is a historical fiction story. We will be working on cause and effect and rhyming. Our amazing words are: celebration, sprinted, barn, blacksmith, arch, soldier. Our essential question for the story is: How is life today different from things we used long ago? We will also review verbs.
Math: We will be finishing up our numbers 0-20 and we have been doing a great job writing our numbers, counting objects, and drawing objects to match the number. We will continue to count to 100, count our days of school, write numbers in the tens and ones place.
