February 2nd-6th Parent Newsletter

It’s February! Hope you had a great weekend! Here is the news for this week.

Last Week: We are finishing up with Book D this week. We are also continuing with marking vowels and circling special sounds. For their class work they will be asked to circle special sounds and mark vowels. They will also be graded on it so practice, practice, practice!

Phonics:  We have begun our special sounds this past week and have continued marking vowels. They are catching on fast! Just keep practicing! Here are the rules again… If there is one vowel in a word, it makes the short vowel sound, and we put a smiley face on top. Long vowels: If there are two vowels in a word, the first vowel makes the long vowel sound, it says its name, and the second vowel is silent. You put a stick on top the first vowel and you cross out the second. We will be saying these every day in class and I encourage you to practice saying them at home.

Numbers: Review number families, practicing one or two families a day. Practice counting nickels and adding them, counting by 5’s. Also practice adding, recognizing numbers, and doing what comes before, what comes after.
