        For Core Knowledge, our unit is, “Nursery Rhymes”. We are reading many nursery rhymes. These are just like short stories with characters, settings, main idea & other elements of reading.  We are creating rhymes, acting out the stories, learning new vocabulary, and participating in hands on activities and crafts.

    For math will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes in math. The kiddos will be describing, identifying, naming, and comparing 2D and 3D shapes.

    We have begun penmanship and the importance of a proper grip and the placement of letters on the lines. 

    This includes writing their name (first letter uppercase, all others lowercase). A practice sheet will be attached to homework to guide proper strokes, letter formation & placement. Continue home practice until students can easily & properly print their name.

        In reading we are learning to point and track printed words. The first 2 sight words “I, am” have been introduced. We have discussed characters and are identifying the main character is in a story. Next week we will be learning one letter a day: name, sound & printing. We will begin to blend the sounds to read words.
