WRITING—We write everyday!   This month we will learn how to write a 5-sentence paragraph (topic sentence, 3 details, and a closing sentence).  We’re still working on: handwriting, spacing, capital letters, and ending punctuation.

SPELLING—Students are doing well noticing the ‘chunk’ and spelling a range of words.  We do 3 activities with the words each week and have a test on Friday.

MATH—Students should be able to count by 2s, 5s, and 10s all the way to 120.  We’ll talk about odd and even numbers, ordinal numbers (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.), graphs, and reading a thermometer.  Students can now play ST Math at home.  Go to and click on ‘students,’ then ‘Clever.’  Your child should know their username and password.
