Rainbow Banner.png Sight Words:  I am testing the kids on word lists. They will move onto the next list once they complete their current list.  The kids will not all be on the same list, but please make sure you are going through these words NIGHTLY with your child.  The kids will be successful readers the more sight words they know. :)

Blackboard With Letters.png
Phonics:  Jj


The kids are working on the K and C rule:
Use a K if the sound following is e, i or y
Use a C if the sound following is a, o, u or any consonant

 

Current Letters the kids should know:  Ll, Oo,Gg, Hh, Tt, Pp, Aa, Nn, Mm, Ii, Ss, Ff, Rr, Kk, Bb, Uu, Cc, Ee, Yy, Vv, Jj


We learned about compound words also this week.  Two words that come together to make a brand new word.  
Ex: Pan/cake = pancake
Ex: base/ball=baseball

Topics we are covering:
 *Vowels (A,E,I,O,U) and consonants
 *Rhyming words (words that sound the same at the end)
       
  Ex: Top, Pop
       Ex: Tall, fall 
*Sounds make up words, words make up sentences.  We practiced counting how many words were in sentences.  
       Ex: I see the ball.  (4 words)
       Ex: The bear is brown and big. (6 words)

Writing:
  
We are practicing writing sentences on their own on a given topic.  The kids are using sight words to build their sentences and sounding out words.  The kids are coming home with indep. work with scores on them. Take a look!! 
If your child is getting 1's on their paper, they could use practice at home too.

Reading:
 I am sending home R.E.D (Read Every Day) The books they are bringing home are the books on their indep. reading level.  I hope to get  every child  reading at a D level before moving to First Grade.  Practice, practice, practice!!!!!! 
HELP MY KID CANNOT BLEND!!!!!!!!!!  If this is how you feel try having the child blend the first two sounds and then tag.  This also just takes time and practice.  Do not get frustrated with your kiddo-- just keep practicing.  This comes with time! :)
