February 2, 2015

Dear Parents,

We hope you had a great weekend with your family! We are beginning a new month today, FEBRUARY.

This week your child will inquire into the following:

Language Arts

Working with Words: This week's words are:
sentence, car, think, man, good, name
Your child will be learning these words and reviewing older words through various chants and activities.

 We will continue reading Frog and Toad All Year Round by Arnold Lobel. Students will be identifying who is telling the story in various parts in the text. Also, they will identify words and phrases in a poem that suggest feeling or appeal to the senses.

Students will ask and answer questions about key details from information presented through media to determine or clarify meaning of unknown words.

We will begin Chapter 6, place value and data, counting up to 120 and making numbers using tens and ones.
The class will be practicing skip counting by 2s, 5s and 10s, up to 120. Please help your child with skip counting by asking them to count nightly. Your child is expected to be able to count to 120 forward and back by 1s.
 Recommended Stories : Reading math stories reinforces ideas.
One is a Snail, 10 is a Crab by April Pulley Sayre

We will continue investigating solids, and liquids. Students are very excited about this unit. If you have any books about this topic and want to share them, please feel free to send them with your child. We would really appreciate it!
