Week of Monday, October 14, 2019
Welcome to a new week in KG! It is going to be a fun and busy week! We will continue this week with the letter Aa. Our alpahafriend is Andy Apple. We will focus on the short /a/ sound as in the median of CVC words such as mat, cap, pan, bag, and ham. Our new words for the week are an, am, at, and purple. In ELA this week our Lesson Topic is Using Our Senses. In phonological awareness, we will blend onset and rime. In comprehension skills, we will compare and contrast, text and graphic features, and monitor/clarify. In language, we will use context clues and in grammar, we will focus on sensory words. We will also complete our first ELA test. In Math, we will finish chapter 2 and tested on the skills learned. We will introduce Chapter 3: Represent, Count, and Write Numbers 6 to 9; we will count to tell the number o objects, know number names and the count sequence, and compare numbers. In Religion, we will introduce Chapter 4: God Gives Us the Land. We will learn about the land God created for us. Our Weekly Reader Let’s Find Out topic is Trees, Colorful Trees. Please practice addresses, phone numbers, and tying shoes.
It will be a great week in KG!
