Welcome to Room 109!

(Week of 9/30/19)

This week our phonics focus will be a review of the sounds of both short a and short i.  We will practice both sounds to really solidify all that we have learned about  these two vowels so far. As we continue to learn about characters, we will map the traits of characters in various stories.  The class will also look at the way characters might change throughout a story.   


In math we are continuing to compare numbers.  We are using the words same, more, fewer, greater than, and less than to talk about how numbers relate to each other.  You can help at home by having your child practice accurate counting (piles of pennies, m&m's, cereal - be creative) and comparing groups of things. 


Remember that homework folders and log sheets are due  on Friday.  Please get in touch with me if you have any questions.
