- Unit 4 is all about bonus letters -ss, -ll, -ff, and -zz.  We are also learning about the glued sound "all".   We are reviewing tapping to read and spell as well as practicing word and sentence dictation on our white boards and in our Student Notebook.

-Students are participating in daily center activities to reinforce concepts previously taught as well as engage them at their individualized reading abilities. 
Our Centers include:
-Read to Self (Book Shopping for Book Baggies)
-Listen to Reading (Choice Books on EPIC)
-iReady Reading
-Work on Writing (Monthly themed journals)
-Word Work (Stamp weekly tricky (heart) words, practice writing and building words with personal sight word lists)

Language Arts/Writing

Units: Launching, Nonfiction: All About Books, Poetry, and Personal Narrative, How To

We are currently drafting our chosen pieces from our Launching Unit. We will take our chosen piece through the writing process (Draft, Revise, Edit, Publish).  At the end, we will share and celebrate our writing with each other.

 Social Studies
- Starts MP 2

-We are working on finding unknown addends, relating addition to subtraction, as well as word problems. 

-We are learning how various strategies can lead us to the same answer, and we are practicing how to talk about those strategies with each other.  

-Keep practicing basic addition and subtraction.
-Some strategies we have learned to help us add and subtract:
chips, ten-frame, draw a picture, number line, make a 10, doubles, near doubles

*Please continue to practice basic math facts at home!

**Encourage your children to use various strategies to help them solve problems (number bonds, ten frames, draw it out, number line, etc...)**                    

We are learning all about Sound and Light, and how they both can help people (and animals) communicate.
We are stepping away from a traditional weekly spelling list and test again this year.  Instead, spelling will be embedded in our phonics program (FUNdations) and Writer's Workshop.  Spelling will be assessed formally during FUNdations unit tests, and informally through daily application in authentic writing.
