November 20-December 1

This week we are learning the phonograms “V” (1 sound—as in vote) and “Y” (4 sounds—as in yellow, gym, sky, baby). We’ll be using some actions to help us learn the sounds. You can find a video with the actions for all the phonograms we’ll be learning on our blog; just go to the “Parent Help” page. We’ll also be learning and practicing how to write the capital and lowercase letters as we’re learning the sounds.

This week, our sight words are “his” “they”.

Oral Reading Quiz (Tuesday): J, K, L, W, as, with, on, are (Students will need to read the words and say all the sounds for the phonograms)

Written Phonogram Check (Thursday): J, K, L, W, R, U (I’ll say the sounds, and the students will write the letter that says that sound)

Spelling Test (Friday):

For Circles, Triangles, and Squares: We are working on beginning sounds, so they just need to get the first letter of the word. They’ll be given 10 words from their sort (any of the pictures). We’re encouraging them to write as many sounds as they hear, but they just need to get the first letter to get the point.

For the Hexagons: We’re working on word families this week. They’ll be given 10 words from their sort (any of the pictures as well as some challenge words with the same word family). To get the point for their word, they’ll need to get the first sound as well as the word family.

Homework: Please go to the “Homework” tab above to see and print this week’s homework.

Other Information:

Some ideas include: Attend a play or musical; Participate in a play or musical; Put on a play at home; Create a costume; Learn a dance routine; Write a script; Make a playbill; Listen to a soundtrack from a musical…or anything else you can think of! Our project day is November 20, when you can bring your project, a picture of your project, or something from your project/experience to share with the class!
