What We’re Learning
Reading: In phonics, we are continuing to work on digraphs /ch/, /sh/, and /th/ and on consonant blends. This week we’ll continue to work on segmenting and blending words and on building words with digraphs and consonant blends.
Our afternoon reading lessons will be reading informational texts about farm animals. We will start with close reading about horses, then break into partnerships or small groups to research other farm animals. This project will take all of this week and part of next week, wrapping up just before spring break.
Writing: We have finished our “how-to” books, and we look forward to sharing them with you at conferences. This week we will work on finding specific information and sharing it with readers in formats other than books (posters, power point presentations, etc.).
Math: We are continuing to work on addition to 10 and on the tricky teen numbers.
