In math we are learning place value and the different forms of writing numbers (standard, word, & expanded form). If you get a chance, ask about the three bears.
Next week we'll be starting our regular reading and spelling groups. I realize that spelling may look a little different this year for your child. Make sure that they study their words twice each week as part of their spelling homework. We will still have spelling tests each Friday.
- Read silently to self
- Read to someone else (parent, sibling, grandparent)
- Someone reads aloud to the student
- Shared reading where people take turns reading from the same book.
What should students read? I'm going to leave that up to you. I'll count magazines, newspapers, scriptures, fiction, and non-fiction. Interestingly, I have had some students ask if reading closed captions on the TV will count as homework. I'll have to say no, but this is a good way to get your child to read more.
