Today, a note is coming home about a Thanksgiving Reader’s Theater. Each child will be in charge of a part of the story “The Night Before Thanksgiving.” The performance will be Friday, November 16th at 12:00 in our classroom. If your child cannot make it, please let me know ASAP so their part can be covered.
Their homework is to practice their part LOUD and SLOWLY to be heard for the performance. It doesn’t have to be memorized but does need to be fluent and phrased. Practice every night in addition to their nightly reader.
Spelling this week is the same as last week: but, what, all, were, when
Math: introduction of subtraction (Minus Linus and making numbers smaller by taking away) and continuing shapes.
Writing: We will begin our class Turkey Story and continue to work on independent writing with beginning, middle, and end in addition to our penmanship.
Phonics: 3 sounds of -ed. Sometimes you hear -ed like in shouted. Sometimes it sounds like a -t like in stopped. Sometimes it sounds like a -d like in watered. The kids come across these in books and need to know what sounds right and what makes sense when coming to a word with -ED at the end.
Two more weeks before break and still SO much to learn and progress in! Thanks for all you do! Time sure is FLYING!!
