Behavior Lessons

We have covered Listening,Focusing, Following Directions. This week we will discuss using
self-talk to stay on task and being assertive and speaking out when you need help or have
a problem.  

Language Arts

Rhyming - Practice rhyming with your child.  Read stories with rhymes from authors like
Dr. Suess and Sandra Boynton.  Discuss how rhymes sound the same at the end of the
words.  Practice writing these letters Capital and Lowercase.

Letters - Review Letters Aa - X, x and Introduce Y, y and Z, z.  Concentration on letter
Mm for remainder of the week.  As you ride in the car, go for walks, and read books
together, look for these letters.  Discuss the short vowel sounds of a, as in alligator, e as
in elephant, i as in iguana, o as in octopus, u as in umbrella.  The sound of y, z, and m.

High Frequency Words - A little pamphlet was sent home with High-Frequency words to
study for Unit 1.  I am also sending home word cards on card stock this week to be cut
apart and begin studying so your child can read them upon sight.  I will also be sending
home little story readers that include these words for your child to practice reading.  
Students have been introduced to the words
I, like, the,and  so far.   New word for this
week
see. Please look for these words in stories that you read at bedtime.  Point to them
and see if your child can read them.  You can practice all eight words cards sent home on
card stock if you feel your child is ready to work ahead.  If you want me to send you more
of the high-frequency words, just drop me a line and I will send you the next 8 words.  
There are over 80 high-frequency words that need to be learned this year.  

Handwriting

Writing their first name with a capital letter in the beginning and the rest of the letters
lowercase.  Please practice writing name this way.  Students often get in the habit of
writing their name in all capital letters and this is very hard to break.
Also practice writing letters that were taught.  Capital A - Z and lowercase a - z.  They
will be graded on how they write the letters M, m, S, s, A, a.
