The letters - recognition - All letters should be recognized.
A helpful activity is to have the students review the letters, both upper and lower case, and read them as quickly as possible so that naming them becomes automatic.

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 don't need to slow down to figure them out.
Concepts to be reviewed - Using picture cues to assist understanding of the story and to assist in identifying new words to be read. Identifying character and setting, turning pages from the front to the back of the book, proper book handling, following words from the left side to the right side of the book and returning to the left side.
Writing - When writing sentences, they should be capitalizing the first word in a sentence and using an end mark(period or question mark). Practice writing first and last names. The children should only be capitalizing the first letter in their names.
They may also practice writing sight words and putting them into sentences.
Math - Addition and subtraction and using - and + signs. We will be revisiting the concept of more and less. The children will compare groups and identify which has more or less. They will also tell how many more or less objects there are when comparing two groups.
Review - numbers to 100, recognition, amounts, writing.
Understanding more, less. Identifying objects more than 10 and less than 10 using a tens box.
