Mrs. Borden and Mrs. Jones’ Newsletter (Week of April 24, 2017)
Math: Our new topic is, Topic 12, Measurement. Our math words to use are: longer than, shorter than, as tall as, taller than, lighter than. Our Topic Essential Question is: How can objects be compared by length, height, capacity, and weight? We will continue this topic until the end of the week.
Reading: Our new story is This Is The Way We Go To School and it is a book that we will use to focus on the plot of the story. We will discuss how children in different parts of the world get to school. Our amazing words include: cable car, trolley, horse and buggy, skis, Metro line, vaporetto.
Handwriting/Writing: We will continue to work on our Daily Fix Its (where the sentences are lacking some of the writing rules) and the class has to fix the problems. We will look at using capital letters at the beginning and lowercase everywhere else, two finger spacing, and correct punctuation at the end. We will also review all capital letters and putting them in alphabetical order. We are working hard on writing words that we know how to spell in our best handwriting.
***Please continue to review all letters, sounds, numbers, counting patterns, as well as sight words. Also, please continue to read each night and complete the AR book log as the goal is at least 15 books a month.
