Thank you for such great participation in the weekly homework! I hope your child enjoyed it.
Last week was lots of fun. The kids did a great job with all the new tasks they were presented with. One of the most challenging was their first spelling test. I put the grade in as a process grade, so please check it out in HAC. I will send home their tests on Monday, with an attached copy of what the expectations are for a first grade spelling test. I think that now they have seen it and done it, this week will be much easier.
This week we will be learning short o and short u. You can practice this at home by coming up with words that contain those sounds. Say the word and have your child identify which sound they hear. Then have your child come up with words that contain short o and short u. Also, don't forget you can refer to the words in the BEE folder, in the ELA information sleeve, for more practice.
In Math we will continue partitioning shapes into halves and fourths. To facilitate this, our class is "helping" a zoo reconfigure their enclosures to accommodate more animals so each animal has an equal share. We are also starting to talk about our upcoming zoo trip, tentatively set for October 25.
Hope you have a GREAT week! Can't wait to see the kids tomorrow!
