For the week of January 7, 2019

*Wednesday, 1/9 - Noon Dismissal - School Liturgy at 8:45am

Our Work for the Week:

SPELLING WORDS: why, by, my, try, hang, wing, bang, thing, sung, long
*There will be a spelling test on FRIDAY this week.

READING: This week we will read a fantasy called How Leopard Got His Spots. We will practice sequencing of events with this story.

FUNDATIONS: We will begin Unit 7 and introduce the glued sounds 
-ang, -ing, -ong, -ing.

TRICK WORDS: why, by, my, try
WORDS OF THE DAY: hang, wing

: We will review statements and questions and then begin learning about adjectives.

MATH: We will continue with Chapter 4: Subtraction Concepts. Last week we were introduced to the strategies of counting back and thinking about how addition can help us with subtraction. This week we will start off with a little more practice with how addition helps us with subtraction and then move onto using a 10 to help us subtract.

*Although we are working on a subtraction chapter, it will still be very helpful to review the addition strategies of doubles and friends of ten. The children were excited to see how knowing these facts made solving subtraction facts so much easier!

**Please note that if during the day we use pages out of our Big Math Book in class, I will send those pages home in the red take home folder so you can see how the lesson was taught during the day. It is my hope that, if needed, this will help you be able to assist your child with the homework that night. 

RELIGION: We will begin talking about the different ways we can pray. We will also have a visit with Father Brian this week as well as attend our monthly liturgy on Wednesday.

SCIENCE: We will begin a new unit on the Solar System. We will start with talking about the sun and how the planets move (rotation and revolution).

**As always, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
