Week 25 ~ Mar. 5 - Mar. 9, 2018


This week we kick off ONE DISTRICT, ONE BOOK!  It is a BIG book club across Isle of Wight County Schools.  Your child will bring home a copy of Charlotte’s Web tomorrow.  Every child in IOW Pre-K through 8th grade will be reading it.  I encourage you to take this time to READ it to your child.  We’ve spent so much time this year practicing our Kindergarten reading, let’s let the grown ups have a turn!  J  Your child will still bring home 2 books in his/her bag with their logs but feel free to use this reading time as your child’s 2 nightly Homework steps.  If you read Charlotte’s Web for 15 minutes, then log that as a step.  If you read it for 30 minutes, that’s 2 steps!  Write the book in 2 times!  Thanks for taking the time to be in this special club with so many other young readers!

This week we will:
  • Learn about rain forest ecosystems, animals, plants, adaptations and food webs
  • Identify fiction and nonfiction stories we read aloud
  • Look for blends and digraphs when trying to read new words (bl, br, gl, dr, sp, sw, th, sh, etc.)
  • Read Power Words at flash speed
  • Use Power Words and letters to write our thoughts down on paper
  • Decode and spell 1, 2 or 3 syllable words
  • Continue learning about a penny, nickel, dime and quarter
  • Recognize coins and their values
  • Tell how many pennies makes a nickel, dime and quarter
  • count backwards from a given number

Homework for the week:
  • ask your child what our class G.R.E.A.T. goal was this week? (Respect) Ask what that means to him/her.  Can he/she give you examples of some ways he/she showed respect last week?
  • read for 30 minutes each night – log in 2 books that you read (or log in your Charlotte’s Web reading!)
  • practice Power Words – can you read them at Flash Speed?
  • log in and play with GiGi on ST Math if you are looking for more math practice at home!
