• We hope that everyone had a restful Thanksgiving break. We have three more weeks until our Christmas break and the end of the second quarter. We have completed our study of sound and letter formation of all lowercase letters. Sound identification has helped us write and read decodable words. Tricky words are an important part of our learning when reading and writing. Please practice identifying these nightly. We have been working on writing an opinion writing. We will continue to discuss, draw, and write about how we feel about a given topic. Our writings are becoming more legible. In math, we will compare numbers using the words more than and less than. We will also show one more than and one less than a given number. Make sure to continue to practice during the Christmas holidays.
