Hundley's Headlines for November 21-23, 2016

Week 12

I am looking forward to Thanksgiving break and spending time with my family.  Please sign and return report card envelopes and the ‘Impact Aid Program’ survey if you have not yet done so.  A few reminders make sure you are practicing Power Words every night for homework and they need to know them and be able to read them at ‘flash speed’.  There are only three per week and it is much easier to learn them as we go because we are using them in class daily and it will help them to progress in the reading series.  Besides our groups in reading and math, we are working on ST Math.  As soon as your child has completed two levels they may begin working at home in this program.  It is great practice!

This week we will:
  • Learn about the sounds of /ch/ /sh/ and /th/
  • Name and read words that begin with /ch/ /sh/ and /th/
  • Review all Power Words
  • Use letters and sounds to write a sentence to communicate our thoughts
  • Count by 1’s and 10’s
  • Identify 1 more (or 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 more if ready!) than a given number
  • learn about the First Thanksgiving
  • continue learning about reptiles
  • compare reptiles, mammals and birds

Homework for the week:
  • read for 30 minutes every night and log in 2 steps every night
  • cut apart and practice your new Power Words
  • practice ‘old’ Power Words’ – Do you know them at Flash Speed?
