January 7th-11th Class News

Happy New year!!!!!

 

Phonics: We are beginning long vowel sounds and our special sound charts. The kids must learn their vowel rules and know how to do them. The rules are on the first page of homework packet and I will put them on here.

Short vowel rule: When there is one vowel in a word, it makes the short vowel sound and I put a smiley face on top.

 

Long vowel rule: When 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 are now writing our different number families. We are reviewing all our families. They should know and recognize numbers 1-100. The first digit is the father of the family which gives the family its name. We have started to learn how to count by 10s and introduced the dime.

 

Memory Verse: P- “Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God.” Psalm 147:1

 

Events:

January 11th– Report Cards issued

January 21st– Martin Luther King Jr. Day observed (NO SCHOOL)

 

 

 

Don’t Forget: Last week I sent home our class snack schedule. Please do not forget to check the schedule every day. I will start sending home a big pink bag in your child’s school bag when it is their snack day. You can send the snack back in the big pink bag. It will also work as a reminder. I also ask you to check your child’s folder every day. This is how we communicate. I ask that you sign the boxes where it says parent’s signature, so I know you are checking their folders. Also sign the boxes next to the homework assignments on the behavior charts when the homework is completed. Make sure to subscribe to receive our class email on our school website. That way you are receiving the email and you will get a hard copy in your child’s folder. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! It’s time to get back into the swing of things and start a few new things. We will begin reading groups in these next few weeks, marking vowels, and learning special sounds. Lots of new things!
