Upcoming Events

(see information in the Friday folder)

11/7- No School/ Professional Development


Diagraphs- /Sh/ and /Th/
We have been learning that diagraphs make one sound. Ask your child to make each sound and sing the song that goes along with it. 
We read a fun 'Trickery" tale called "The Singing Turtle," and made predictions as we read. Then everyone illustrated and wrote about their favorite part of the story. This story also taught us new vocabulary words such as brilliant, entertain, and perform. 

Social Studies / Science

We have had so much fun this week learning about several unique animals that live in Australia. Ask your child to share interesting facts about koala bears, kangaroos, bilbies, and the wombat. Tomorrow we have a Sand Creek family that will be showing us their pet Wallaby. We can't wait to see it! 


Homework should not exceed more than 30 minutes a night. Our purpose is to build responsibility and practice skills.
  • Read nightly for 10-15 minutes from their reading bags. Practice reading and writing the sight words.

  • Word work skills- Fundations/ Letter Study:

  • Homework Resource- Unit 2 resources

  • Math- Number expressions for 10. Complete and return on Friday.

  • i-ready- online lessons (one reading & one math per week)

  • Friday Folders- Please review items and return folder on Monday.


As we continue working on solving word problems we have been comparing sums and finding out what it means for numbers to be equal to one another. (ex. 7+3=6+4.
In addition we have been estimating and using the strategy of "counting on" to find out how far off our guesses were.
