Language Arts: We will spend most of September continuing to review the letters and their sounds. Once we have gotten though all the letters and sounds, we will start our regular language arts lessons. These lessons include guided reading, sight word study, rhyming, blending, and many other components. The first homework packets will go home on September 25. You have an entire week to finish the homework and send it back to school. The homework focuses on the 10 sight words that we are learning that week. It also has a list of spelling words attached. Please help your student study the words each week.
Math: Our math curriculum has already begun and is off to a great start. The kids are involved in hands on activities. They even get to spend time each day playing math games. The games are designed to help the class learn about numbers, counting, and other mathematical facts, but to the students, they are just fun.
Themes: We are going to be learning about our bodies the first week of September. The class will learn about the different parts of the body, including the organs and their functions.
We are also going to be doing a two week unit on the five senses, exploring each of the five senses in different ways.
We are also doing a two week lesson on Nutrition, where we discuss healthy vs. not healthy foods. We will also learn about how to take care of our bodies and stay strong and healthy.
