Please let me know if you are having any problems with the app or getting my emails. I want to be sure that we are all able to be in touch with end of year events coming up. Thank you!

Phonics: This week we talked about digraph sh, th, ch, wh. We will go into more detailed lessons for each of these starting next week. Sight Words: We tested over lists 1-14 this week. We will continue with list 15 next week. I will not test next week with it being a short week.

Reading: We worked in our stations this week and did a lot of reading at my table. Stations this week were:

Read to Self: We read leveled books to ourselves using our reading powers to read each word.
Word Work: They sorted words based on the digraph they hear in the word. Then they copied the words into a list form from the pocket chart where they sorted them.
Listening: Listened to stories.
Teacher Table: We worked on leveled books. We read together, they took turns reading. We talked about strategies to use when they get stuck on a word. Sound power, picture power, pointer power. I also started benchmarking for report cards to see where their new independent reading level is at this time of the year.
Math: The students worked on subtraction all this week. I worked with them on different strategies to help them solve subtraction problems. We talked about how they can use objects to help them solve subtraction problems (counters, coins, etc...) We also talked about using pictures of objects and crossing them out when they need to be taken away. Lastly, we talked about using our fingers! We will talk about missing number in a subtraction problem next week. I am hoping to test over subtraction the week after conferences.
Writing: We started to talk about persuasive writing and finished up our opinion pieces.


Science: We finished our Galimotos this week. We will test next week.
