Story Words :  (Need to be able to read these)

Amazing Words- Students don't need to spell or read all of these words.  They just need to know what they mean when they hear them.  These words are in some of our readings this week.

      Question of the Week -  In what creative ways do we communicate?

    This week's words all have the long o sound in such words as coat, old, and mow.    


Language -      We are writing about our thoughts on the New Year.  For grammar we are discussing verb agreement. 

Math -  We are reviewing telling time to the half hour.  We are also discussing telling time to the minute.  Regrouping (trading) in addition is being discussed this week.  We are also continuing our practice with math facts and subtraction.  The students are also working on problem solving.

Science -    We are reading and discussing the emails about the Monarchs in Mexico at the Sanctuaries.   

Social Studies and Global Awareness -   We are reading and discussing information about the Sanctuaries in Mexico.  We are reading and discussing topics such as Martin Luther King and the Chinese New Year.


 ** Tip ** 

 Phonics / Spelling 

When trying to spell a word you don't know, try 'tapping out' the sounds.  Now 
match the letters to the number of sounds.  Practices recognizing spelling patterns which may include blends, digraphs, r-controlled vowels, or dipthongs.  This also works on separating each sound that should be heard separately so you don't jump over a letter when writing it down.

For example:    sip  -  3 sounds (_ _ _) &  3 letters - s-i-p  
However......        ship  -  also 3 sounds (_ _ _)   But... 4 letters sh-i-p
car  -  2 sounds (_ _)  But 3 letters  c-ar
