In English we continue to develop our reading and writing skills. We read the book "Duck, Rabbit" and had lots of interesting discussions as a result. As a class, we graphed our predictions and then The students worked with their pair share partner to give their own personal perspective on the story. Our writing this week continued to focus on the proper sentence structure with some isolated printing practice to master the proper letter formation. Please encourage your child to write at home (grocery lists, cards, letters to relatives) to further support their learning here at school. The boys and girls are very eager to read. With greater regularity, they are recognizing word wall words in different texts (especially on the morning message and during independent reading time). They are also learning to sound out unknown words with the different strategies learned in class. We have many different reading levels within our Grade One community and each child is supported and challenged at his or her specific reading level. Please continue to Read and review the word wall words each night. This practice is essential towards building a confident, independent, and successful reader.
