Spelling: The next spelling test will be September 5th. 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: mom, ox, hot, hop, pop, pot, lock, mop, got, rock, on, are
Reading: Our story we will read is, “The Big Blue Ox.” The genre is fantasy. We will learn about the short /o/ as in hop and words with a plural –s as in pots. We will continue to identify the characters and setting of a story. In language, we will learn how to identify and write declarative (telling) sentences.
High Frequency Words (Students are supposed to recognize these words in 3 seconds or less): at, be, this, have, from, or, one, had, by, word
Math: We will continue adding numbers. Our focus will be making numbers and adding 3 numbers together (Example 2+3+1=6.) We will use the strategy of counting on or the number line as a tool.
