Unit 4 in FUNdations is all about spelling 1-syllable short vowel words with a bonus letter (f, l, s, and sometimes z).

ex: fall, toss, hill, puff, cuff, buzz...etc

We are learning all about Main Idea and Details during our whole group mini-lessons. We are practicing what we learn during Daily 5 time.

Comprehension Strategies we discuss in class:

Retelling, Sequencing, Main idea and Details

Author's Purpose, PLOT


*Our trick words for this unit are glued in your child's "Trick Word Book".  Please keep this book in your child's folder.


Unit 4 weeks 1 &2:

you, you, I, they, was, one, said


(* is a great beginning reader site*   

Take a look at the Learn To Read link.)

Language Arts/Writing

*We will be learning all about singular vs. plural nouns.
*We will discuss how some plural nouns end in -s and some end in -es

*In Writer's Workshop we are currently publishing our first writing piece. 


  Social Studies with Mrs. Merker

Christopher Columbus
Fire Safety

Topic 3 is all about numbers on a 10-frame.  We will also learn all about different ways to make 5 and 10 using a ten-frame.  

Next Up: More Addition and Subtraction!

*Please continue to practice basic math facts at home!

**Encourage your children to avoid using their fingers.  They can use objects, draw pictures, use a number-line, or count on/back to find the sum or difference.



(Mrs. Shea also has lots of fun links on her webpage...check out sheppardsoftware!) 

We are wrapping up our unit on Space this week. 
Next up: Animals and Biomimicry

We are stepping away from a traditional weekly spelling list and test this year.  Instead, spelling will be imbedded in our phonics program (FUNdations) and our Writer's Workshop.  Spelling will be assessed informally through daily application in authentic writing.
