Spelling: The next spelling test will be August 29. The spelling words and dictation sentences are not graded the 1st nine weeks but IT IS VERY IMPORTANT to establish this routine of studying and testing.
Spelling words are: did, fix, in, it, lip, mix, pin, sit, six, wig, you, was
Reading: Our story we will read is, “Pig in a Wig.” The genre is fantasy. We will learn about the short /i/ as in pig and the final /x/ as in six. Our reading skill will be to learn about the difference between reality/fantasy and summarizing. In language, we will learn how to find the naming part of a sentence.
High Frequency Words (Students are supposed to recognize these words in 3 seconds or less): he, as, was, with, for, his, on, they, are, I
Math: We will continue making numbers. Our focus will be making numbers to 10 (Example 8+2=2+8.) The number line will be used as a strategy for adding numbers.
Social Science: We will start a unit on how items are balanced and how items move (roll, spin, etc.)
