Find this week's lessons and related worksheets on page 1. This week's plans are labeled June 8 to June 16. I have them all listed for the rest of the school year.

This week your Language Arts assisnments will center around summer. I hope you have fun thinking of places you would like to visit and writing or drawing about them. You will also need to think about items you would bring along whether you were going out for a day or for an overnight stay. I hope you have some fun planning an imaginary trip.




Reminder:
All students should complete 10 minutes of Reading and 10 minutes of Math each day on i-ready.com.

Learning News


Language Arts - The children have begun reading groups. They are using readers that incorporate their sight words. It is important they recognize these words quickly. 


Sight words - These words should be practiced for homework daily. . . has, have, with, look, little, on, no, come, go,we, the, see, I, can, like , a, am, to, it, is, in, and, run, that, of, my, me, you. 


Sight Words
The importance of sight words and high frequency words - these words are the most commonly occurring words while reading. Learning sight words and recognizing them quickly assists the students in understanding what they read. They won't need to slow down to figure them out.

The letters  - 
We  work on letter and sound recognition daily. 
Quick recognition of  letters will assist with word recognition.

Letters taught to date - recognition of all letters and their corresponding sounds have been taught. We are currently working on the procedure for writing both the upper and lower case letters. The children will receive homework to practice letter formation.   

The short vowel sound is what they have learned. We will be incorporating the silent e to make a long sound as it occurs in their reading books. 

The sound for g and c taught is the hard sound for these letters. 

                                                                                             

Concepts to be reviewed - sight words, letters taught, numbers through 10, counting to 100 by 1's and 10's. 

Writing - As the children are taught to write their letters and names, they are taught that the letter stroke should always begin at the top and "pull down". This action could be reinforced at home as they practice what they have learned in school.

Written response - This is begun with an illustration to a prompt related to a story that was read. They will begin to add writing to their responses. They will use sight words and sound spellings to tell about what they drew. 

Math - We have begun with the basics - recognition of numbers 0-10, the amounts that correspond to the number and how to write the numbers using their lined pages. They are also beginning to understand the concept or more/less and 1 more. Beginning addition has started with the introduction of learning 2 parts that equal a given number such as 5 = 3+2. This process has been completed to the number 10.

Counting to 100 is the goal for kindergarten students. We will work on this skill through the year. The students will use a number chart to assist them as they practice. Recognizing patterns as they count through the decades will also assist them with this skill.

Each student received a laminated number chart to assist them with the above skill. They should use the chart and practice counting daily.
