reading, writing, spelling, graphing and map making

Dear Children and Families,

Thank you for volunteering for swimming!


HOME READING:  We are learning to visualize and make a picture in our mind of what is happening in our book.  Ask me to use my five senses to make a picture in my mind of what I am reading.

Important Words:

POWER WORDS:              because asked into don’t
These are words we are learning to read and spell.

ACADEMIC WORDS:         data, tally, survey, bar graph,  pictograph        Map, legend, compass rose
These are words that we are learning to understand the meaning of in math and social studies.


We practiced reading to self and reading to someone.  We are going to also take turns listening to reading. 

We put on our thinking caps today and wrote a reading response about the story Snow Bear by Liliana Stafford.  We drew a picture to help us visualize, wrote a connection and wrote a question.

During word work we read these words.  hop can cut pet slop glob bit pan.  What happens if you add an E to these words?

In math we worked hard to read graphs and think about what the data was telling us.

Ask me what I did during music and phys ed.

We learned about using a compass during Social Studies.  Our mapping team had to add a compass rose to our map.  Ask me what we found out.
