This week we will be reviewing letters A to Z. We will focus on the letter name, sound and writing capital and lowercase and they should say at least 3 words that begin with each letter.
We would like your support on occasionally review the ABC’s letter names and sound. Here are some songs we use in class every day.
Beginning readers use a lot of different ways to become more fluent readers. One of the most important ways to do that is to be able to read and recognize sight words.
Sight words refer to the words that are most frequently used and repeated in books, which is why sight words are also sometimes referred to as “high-frequency” words. The same words are also sometimes called “popcorn words.” The phrase popcorn words refer to the fact that students should be able to just pop those words out every time they see them.
We will be working with 2 sight words per week. This week will be: is/you
Phonemic Awareness: is the ability to hear, identify, and manipulate individual sounds-phonemes- in spoken words. Before children learn to read print, they need to become more aware of how the sounds in words work. They must understand that words are made up of speech sounds, or phonemes (the smallest parts of sound in a spoken word that make a difference in a word’s meaning).
Daily we are working on clapping syllables, differentiating a letter a word a sentence and a number. We are also working on beginning to write and read CVC WORDS (consonant, vowel consonant) such as: cat, bat, rat, pan, map, mop, can, bed, etc.
In math, will continue working with numbers. We will work with numbers 0-15 on how to represent and identify using tally marks, ten frames, number formation, and name of the number, one-to-one correspondence, and sequencing.
