Mr. Wucherer’s Classroom News (October 7th -11th)
A Peek At The Week: Testing is just about done and our small groups will be starting during our center time. During Math we will continue to be learning about numbers. The number 8 and nine will be the focus. We will also learn the vocab. Words: vertex, eight, seven, and six. Please ask your child what the vertex of a shape is. (vertex/corner) We will continue our study of patterns and begin sorting. Please continue writing the numbers 0-20 at home Science will be trees, trees, and trees! Reading will find us discussing fantasy and informational texts, once again. We will continue to discuss nouns and reading/listening for good comprehension. We will discuss vocabulary words like: adventure, movement, arrived, exciting, and exhausted. We will be looking for words that also have the short a sound. We will be continuing our EZ write program and working on all 60 of our sight words. Please feel free to have your child write a sentence or two with these sight words and bring them in to share with the class!!
Looking Ahead: This will be a short week. No school on Thursday, Oct. 17th and Friday, Oct. 18th. We will still have our Reading centers on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. We will continue to work on our EZ write sheets. Please look at these sheets and make sure your child is printing the letters in their name correctly. I correct them daily, but old habits are hard to break! We will continue to discuss and use our five senses. We will focus on nouns, close reading for details, asking and answering questions, and new vocabulary words like; feast, finished; and kneads. Different informational texts will help us with this. Please have your child review the letter (Ss) and look for words that have this letter in the beginning, middle and end of the word. Our writer’s workshop will continue focusing on 1st letter sounds and labeling pictures they are drawing in their writing journal. Math will consist of writing our numbers 0-20, base ten boards, 100 chart and introduction on how to estimate. We also will be building the number 10, reading and writing eight and nine and working on problem solving strategies in Math.
