In Fundations, we have been tapping out CVC words, spelling words on our dry erase boards and using our magnetic letter boards to build those words. We have been reading sentences with trick words and scooping them into phrases. This unit has also focused on real and nonsense words.

Your children have been doing an amazing job reading their books to me from their R.E.D. folders. I am so proud of everyone! Keep up the good work!

In math, we finished learning about tally marks, graphing and coins. We also celebrate the 100th day of school on January 25th. We had so much in math stations doing all sorts of activities based around the number 100! This week we will begin learning teen numbers 11-20.

We have also been learning about arctic animals, hibernation and shadows! Ask your child what hibernation is and which animals they can name that hibernate in winter!
