We have had a radical “r” week! This week has been very busy for the letter “r”. The boys have learned 6 new blends this week. We are starting to blend and write more 4-5 words, and we are so proud of how the boys are always up are a challenge. We started exploring punctuation deeper and discussing what a complete sentence looks like. We have been looking at sentences and discussing which punctuation mark fits the sentence. We wrote in our journals this week and we are working hard to put our thoughts on paper.

The boys have been counting tally marks by 5s for 99 days! We are looking forward to celebrating the 100th day on Monday. Please have your son wear his class t-shirt on Monday. Since we know how to count tally marks, we are now working on writing tally marks. Please practice counting objects in your house and writing tally marks. The boys have been introduced to all the coins. They enjoy counting coins and playing “fill the bank”.

This week, we started discussing weather. We are starting with SNOW! Oh, how we wish it would snow! We have surveyed our friends on their favorite snow activity and used our tally marks to read our results.

We are wrapping up our MLK unit, and we have enjoyed discussing how God created everyone unique and special and how we are to always celebrate who we are. We also talked openly about how to treat others and to make sure we use our words to express ourselves and not our hands.

  We enjoyed learning about MLK this week in celebration of our holiday on Monday.  Boys were engaged in activities that celebrated our differences and we discussed MLK's dream as well as our dreams for the future.  We worked on the letter B, continued blending words, added to our growing red word list, and played red word basketball which was a blast!  We discussed sentence writing and wrote a short story on a black race car.  We continued our study on money and introduced the quarter this week.  We had fun ending our week with a Bug poem and a Happy Gram Party!!

u and ch blog           

We have had a great first week back. We hope you all enjoyed your holidays. This week the boys have worked very hard on several new skills. We introduced our 4th vowel this week- “U”.   The boys learned about the diagraph “ch”. We discussed the meaning of a digraph and how it makes 2 letters create a totally new sound.

We are continuing to discuss sentence structure with correct punctuation, capitalization at the beginning of sentences and correct sentence order.

We reviewed our coins and their values by playing musical chairs. We made number stories and decomposed numbers. We used post it notes to find ways to break numbers down and graphed our results.
