|Last week: We celebrated our 100th day of school! I can’t believe we are already there. This year is flying by. They have all grown so much since day one.
Phonics: We introduced our long vowel rules. We will be reciting our rules and practicing them everyday. I would like you to practice with your child at home as well. We are now marking vowels. I have sent home the Special Sound charts. Special Sounds are basically sounds in a word that do not follow our usual rules.
Short vowel rule: If there is one vowel in word, it makes the short vowel sound and I put a smiley face on top.
Long Vowel rule: If there are two vowels in a word, the first vowel says its name and the second vowel is silent. I put a stick on top the first and cross out the second.
Numbers: We will keep practicing numbers 1-99. Make sure they know those numbers. Keep practicing time, money, and now adding 1 and 0 to numbers 1-9. We will continue to focus on counting by 10s this week as well as focusing on the dime. Last week we began reviewing number words. You can practice those as well.
Memory Verse of the Week: Each week, your child will memorize a verse, we do A-Z, they will get their card on Mondays so you can use it to practice throughout the week.
This week’s memory verse is…
U- “Unto Thee, O God, do we give thanks.” Psalm 75:1
