Phonics: We will have a Phonics test each Friday. Practice vowel sounds and blends:

We will practice these in class every day!
Social Sciences: We will begin our unit on American Symbols.
Reading: We will continue reading groups this week. We will take a comprehension test on Friday. Students will read a story in class and we will discuss it. They should read the story (pages will be on a note card in the book) and then ask an adult to ask them questions about what they read.
Spelling: We will have a spelling test every Friday. Students will write these words when I call them out. This week five bonus words will be added to the list. Students should learn the 10 spelling words first. For a challenge, they can also learn the five bonus words. All students will take the bonus portion of the test. For each bonus word spelled correctly, the student will get 1 extra point on the test. There is no penalty for spelling a bonus word incorrectly.
Spelling: No test this week because of the short week and the Fun Run.
Bible: We will continue our unit on Creation this week. We will have a Bible verse each week. Students will say the verse to me.
Bible Verse: "'Honor your father and mother' - which is the first commandment with a promise. "Ephesians 6:2
Handwriting: We will continue learning how to form the letters.
Creative Writing: Students will continue to practice writing complete sentences using capital letters at the beginning and periods at the end. I will introduce question marks this week. We will continue learning the parts of a sentence. We will be writing super sentences. All sentences should have these four parts:
Begin with a capital letter.
End with a punctuation mark.
Be written neatly.
They will write sentences with their spelling words, write in their journals daily, and write about Creation.
