Week 2

Week 2

We are into our second full week of school. All seems to be going well. I am still trying to assess all the children and get them into reading material at their level. At this point I know that "Sam and the Bag" is not challenging for some children. The first two books of this series are pretty phonetic, therefore not too challenging for some. I will try to supplement the reading material for those who need it. When we get to book three the intensity of each story increases substantially.

This week our vocabulary words are:

and

in

oh

yes

Spelling this week is:

am

ham

had

bad

bad

rag

cap

mad

up

go

We take a spelling test every Friday.

In math, we are doing tally marks. These are very easy for some and totally puzzling for others. Sometimes the saying "four standing tall; ones takes a fall" will help them understand the concept. You might want to have your child do a few numbers in tallies to make sure they are understanding the concept.

Have a great week!!
