Language Arts:

We are going to really focus on learning blends and begin working on both sight words and spelling. Spelling words lists will go home every Monday and we will have tests on Wednesdays. They will be repeated on Fridays for those who do not get 100% on Wednesdays. I am also going to introduce sight words. We will do 5 a week and practice these daily during our circle time.


We will continue working on skip counting. Everyone has done an amazing job learning to skip count by 10’s so we should get the 5’s and 2’s with little issue but recognizing and writing numbers will be our main focus.
