all 10 popcorn words with fluency! Way to go!
Last week started our second term. Look for the 2nd quarter goal packet that came home this week! We focused on the letter Tt and the popcorn words my/can. We continued reviewing all the letters we have learned so far (Mm, Nn, Ff, Vv, Pp, and Bb) and all the popcorn words (I, the, see, to, and, a, like, am, of, in). We played a new rhyming game call Go to the Zoo and read some fun Tt & Pp animal poems.
We continued working on teen numbers! We have some fun chants for the teen numbers. Ask your child to repeat them at home. We recorded ourselves on our youtube channel! We also have several fun songs on our Mighty Math Songs link found on our Calendar Math page!
These past week, we focused on a unit from our Good Habits Great Readers Writing Guide to discuss "What is Writing?" We took a writer's walk around the school and then as a group we wrote sentences based on our five senses. Students were asked to look around the room and the school for writing samples and contemplate who they think the author and illustrators are of those writing pieces. We talked about why people write and I showed them examples of postcards, grocery lists, medical bills, and other items that reinforced the importance of writing.

To continue encouraging helpful behavior, we reviewed our Great Skills chart & read The Berenstain Bears and the Blame Game, The Berenstain Bears Trouble with Friends, The Berenstain Bears Get in a Fight, and Too Many Toys. We recorded ourselves making good choices!
