This week in phonics students will:
- Spell and encode pattern words with aw/ô/, awn/ôn/, all/ôl/, aul/ôl/, al/ôl/

Spell memory words from their week 4 homework list
Ask your child to identify the /ô/ sound in the following words: saw, claw, fawn, yawn, ball, call, haul, fault, salt, almost, always
In Literacy, students will read Snowshoe Thomson in guided reading groups. Comprehension skills they will focus on this week are:
-Determine important ideas: Good reader’s ask themselves questions before, during and after reading so that they understand what they have read.
-Sequence events or steps
-Summarizing- Good readers summarize the story after they have read, so they don’t forget important details.
Ask your child to sequence the steps that Danny and Snowshoe Thompson did when making the skis. Ask your child the importance of the letter that Danny wrote.
In math, students are learning about arrays. Students are learning how to make rectangular arrays, understanding how many tiles are in each row, column and the total number of tiles in each array. We have been making arrays with our bodies on the carpet. Ask your child: If I have 25 tiles how many rows and columns will I have in my array? If I have an array with 3 columns and 2 rows, how many total tiles will I have?
The kids received their first pen pal letter from second graders in San Francisco and are so very excited! We are working on writing our first letter back this week. Most of the students have never seen snow, but they can see the city right out their classroom window! We have received over 100 postcards, had to buy a new bigger map and will rehang them all this week! Thank you so very much. This is just incredible!
Welcome to Second Grade. Together we will learn, wonder, grow, explore, make mistakes, play, laugh and inspire each other to be the best that we can be.
