Weekly Snapshot: April 23-27

What We’re Learning:

SEM Theme for the Month: Audio/Visual

Phonics: We are learning 3 phonograms this week, ti which has 1 sound: /sh/ as in action, si which has 2 sounds, /sh/ as in session, and /zh/ as in vision, and ci as in facial. These 2+ letter phonograms can be tricky! It will be helpful if you review this sound with your child this week, especially as you see it in words! Also, be sure to check out the Phonics tab (under Resources) for tips and tricks to help your child learn these sounds- especially check out the video posted with hand signs for each sound (it helps A LOT). These will all be on the Reading Quiz next week!

Sight Words: We are done with advanced/regular sight word groups. For the remainder of the year, everyone will be working on the same words (number words). This week we have 2 sight words: three & four. Make sure and check out the Sight Words tab (under Resources) for tips and tricks to help your child learn these sight words! They will be on the Reading Quiz next week!

Math:  We will extend the say 10 and regular count sequence to 100.

Science/History: We will talk about different kinds of trees, people and plants, and George Washington Carver.

Writing: We will use 3 or more sentences to describe details about sports we like!

Handwriting: We will continue using the concept of sky, fence, and ground to help with handwriting. We will review writing the letters S & T.

Events/Activities Coming Up:

Field Trip: Our field trip to the Hogle Zoo on April 26 is this week! Yay! Remember to send your child with a lunch- clearly labeled with their name and disposable. Also, if you are a chaperone, remember to bring a backpack to hold your group’s lunches in! I will be sending an email this week with more details. Watch for it! Thanks for all the support!

Reading Quiz: This week, your child will be quizzed on wor, oo, ed, oa, one, two, from, zero. In general, everyone is having a little difficulty remembering the sounds for the 2+ letter phonograms. Please find some time to review with your students! It makes a huge difference! Make sure your child can read these sight words when they see the word and say ALL the sounds for each letter/phonogram when they see it! Advanced Quiz: wor, oo, ed, oa, one, two, if, will.

Spelling Test:  Gold group needs to be able to write the correct first sound (th, wh) and a good guess for the rest of the word. Silver group needs to be able to write the correct first sound (s, t, st). Black group needs to write the correct first sound (pl, sl, bl, fl) and a good guess for the rest of the word, and White group needs to get the whole word correct (word families- ang, ing, ong, ung). If you have any questions, let me know! I know we are almost to the end of the year, but please make sure your child is prepared for their spelling test. These sorts are getting harder and they may need different homework options/help to really help them understand how to spell these words. Also, review spelling tests sent home with your child!

Seed Show and Tell: We are learning about parts of plants and plant life cycles this month. To help with this, we are asking students to bring in different kinds of seeds to show to the class! Your student may bring seeds in at any time during the month of April. Put them in a ziploc bag and label them with what type of seed it is (just in case your students can’t remember and I don’t know). Thanks! This will be a lot of fun! Let me know if you have questions!

Option 3: Zearn for 40 minutes/week (10 minutes a night)

Log on, have your student click on the lesson at the top, and get started!

*Unfortunately, Zearn does not keep track of your child’s minutes. If your child wants to do Zearn for their math minutes, please write how many minutes they did it for on the homework calendar in their folder. We will check it at the end of the week. Ex: Zearn 10 minutes

*If you would like to do a combination of Moby Max, Zearn, and math worksheets, that’s totally fine! 1 worksheet is the equivalent of 10 minutes, so just make sure your “total time” for the week is 40 minutes

Reading:

Students must read for 20 minutes each night Monday-Thursday (and we encourage you to continue on the weekends). This may be individually, with a sibling, parent, friend, etc. Parents, initial the reading homework calendar found inside your student’s homework folder for each night they read. If you miss any days during the week, the weekend is a good time to make them up!

Here’s the reading calendar again if you need it!
