Last Week: We had parent teacher conferences! Thank you all for coming! It was great to meet with all of you and now we are counting down until graduation!

 

Phonics: We have started learning long vowel sounds and our special sound charts. The kids must learn their vowel rules and know how to do them.   They are written below here. Make sure they memorize them and know how to mark their vowels. We are also circling special sounds.

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: They should know and recognize numbers 1-100. We have started to learn how to count by 10s and 5s and we introduced the nickel. We are also adding 0, 1, 2, and 3 to numbers 1-10. We are telling time by the hour and half hours now. (1:00, 2:00, 1:30, 2:30, etc.)

 

Memory Verse: Z- “Zion heard, and was glad.” Psalm 97:8
