Week 13

The story this week is a non fiction story called "Fun with Fish." The phonics sound is the digraph /sh/. The kids really enjoy this story. They like the different kinds of fish the story talks about. The vocabulary words are"

Questions of the Week
Monday - Where is your house? (Physical address)
Tuesday - How many door knobs are in your house?
Wednesday - How many windows are in your house?
Thursday - Holiday
Friday - What color is your house?

In math this week we will continue measurement. We are doing the foot, the inch and using the 6-inch ruler. We will continue to work on memorizing math facts. That is ongoing for the whole year.

Spelling has taken on a new dimension. The kids are having to learn to navigate the program and to type carefully. I think this may make them better at keyboarding and maybe spelling also. We are slow starting but speed will pick up with familiarity of the program.

Remember that Thursday there will be no school in observance of Veteran's Day. We will be back on Friday.

Have a great week!
