In word study this week, we are practicing words with
the oi, oy sounds. As always, practice any way your
child wants. Rule: oi is usually in the middle of a word,
oy at the end of the word. We are also learning about
pronouns, prefixes and suffixes.
Last week we began using information from graphs to
answer questions. This week we will continue using graphs,
and also start working with money. Please use the Module
4 book sent home to practice adding and subtracting at
home. Also continue working with math facts within 20 (ie 8+9).
Our class story is about cowboys, so we will look at
westward expansion and the gold rush this week, what fun!
We are also learning to write stories with a good beginning
and ending that focuses on one topic.
