Speech & Language: This week we will practice the blend /fl/. We will play the game "flipping flap jacks" and our snack of flapjacks (pancakes) will be provided by Sofia.
Sharing: This week we are beginning a new share topic, small things. Please look at the assignment on this classs website for details. This week the Piglets will share.
We will practice words beginning with the sound of /T/ and practice writing the letter /T/. The children are making excellent progress printing and writing words! We are excited to expand our sight word vocabulary and I told the children if they wrote words at home, they could bring them in to share with us. I encourage the children to write words on sticky-notes and "label" their environment. We will be doing this in class too.. The children are also making great progress on the Lexia website and are very motivated. As they move to higher levels, they might need more support at home. Please monitor their progress as they work at home to be sure they are comprehending the directions. As you know, this is optional.
We are now working on Benchmark Unit 7, focusin on transportation. We are practicing letters, sight words too.
Upcoming: We are busy preparing for Read Across America Day, which is on March 2nd, so we will celebrate for the month of March in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday (March 2nd). We will have many opportunities for guest readers during March and I will post a sign up for those of you interested in being a guest reader.
