This week in Superkids, we have started working in our word work books. Your child will review decoding and encoding using sh, ch, nouns, plural pronouns, possessive pronouns and —ch and -tech endings. We have also been working on reviewing our memory words. I will post a list of the memory words that your child will be assessed on this week under the homework tab on our website. In guided reading, your child has begun to read their SUPER magazine. Ask your child, What is your favorite Super Short you have read this week? (Tell me about: The Big Mean Frog, Crazy New Critters, and New Moves.
In writing, we are going to start to build toward writing autobiographies about ourselves. We are going to spend this week writing fun facts about ourselves. We are going to write clues about ourselves and have our friends try and guess the what clues belong to each student. Ask your child what clues they are sharing about themselves. What have they learned about their friend?
In Math, we will be stinging numbers together, finding missing numbers and spending lots of time on money. We will be working with combinations of money. Take some time to explore real money at home with your child. Have your child grab a handful of coins and help them count the total amount they have. We have also started math journaling. The children have been asked to explain their daily math thinking in writing using not inly numbers but words. This will allow for deeper level thinking and to develop their math brain. Ask your child, Which has more value, 12 pennies or two dimes? How do you know?
In social studies, we will continue our work on cultivating a growth mindset. We will also begin to discuss family tradition in the coming weeks. I would also like to start a postcard project. If you have family members that could send us a post card from anywhere in the world, we would absolutely LOVE that. We are going to see how many places we can get a post card from and see who many different places we can discover. Our first post card from Dubai should arrive soon (shhhhh). Look for more information soon. But please share, share, share to as many people as possible.
