Welcome to Room 109(Week of 3/5/18)

Welcome back!  I hope that you enjoyed a fun vacation!

As we dive into this first week in March,  we will continue to look at ways that nature changes during the year.  We will read about where animals go during the cold weather in a play called, Where Are My Animal Friends?  and will continue to practice sequencing. The class will reflect on prior knowledge while we read this and other stories throughout the week.

Our phonics skills for the week will focus on the comparative endings -er and -est (taller, tallest). Ask your child to tell you about our reasons for doubling (or not doubling) the consonant on a base word before adding these endings.  We will also look at the -dge ending (edge).

Learners will continue their work in understanding place value and comparing numbers.  We will increase our understanding of these concepts and our expertise in the use of the greater than (>), less than (<), and equals (=) symbols.


Spelling words:

bigger        biggest

faster        fastest

slower        slowest

shorter      shortest

sadder       saddest

way            could
