Learning News


Language Arts - We are beginning with letter/sound review. Direction while reading is being taught. 
sight words - I, can, we, a, in, to.

 

The letters  - recognition of all letters should be worked on. Quickly recognizing their letters will assist with word recognition. 

A helpful activity is to have the students review the letters, both upper and lower case, and read them as quickly as possible so that naming them becomes automatic.

 

Sight Words
The importance of sight words and high frequency words - these words are the most commonly occurring words while reading. Learning sight words and recognizing them quickly assists the students in understanding what they read. They won't need to slow down to figure them out.

 

Concepts to be reviewed - Children often enter school with knowledge of the concepts of print such as turning pages from the front to the back of the book, proper book handling, following words from the left side to the right side of the page and returning to the left side.

Writing - The children can begin to  practice writing their first and last names. The children should only be capitalizing the first letter in their names.

 

Math - We will begin the year with number recognition to 10 and  corresponding amounts. The children will also begin comparing 2 groups of objects using the words more/less than.
