Due to school being cancelled tomorrow, we will push all spelling and phonics tests to next Friday! All but about 2 or 3 of the students wanted to go ahead and tell me their Bible Verse because they were ready. Those that weren't ready will do it on Tuesday.
The words we learned this week and the sounds will be tested on 9/9! We will not introduce any new spelling words next week.
Math: This week we will begin chapter 2. It is all about addition!
Timed Tests: We will continue taking timed tests each week. The students are off to a great start. Start practicing the fact listed below. Our mixed +3's test will be on Tuesday and the mixed + 2’s and + 3’s test will be Wednesday. Continue practicing all of the facts. Students will have four minutes to complete 20 problems.
Review these facts!

Reading: We will continue reading groups this week. We will take a comprehension test on Wednesday. Students will read a story in class and we will discuss it. They should read the story (pages will be on a sticky note on the front of 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.
man, ran, sun, bus, hot, net, sit, cub, a, the
Bonus Words: brown, blue, black, pink, orange
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.

Handwriting: We will continue learning how to form the letters. This week we will learn K, L, M, N.
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.
