Today in math the students used classroom materials to make 2 different patterns. The students then partnered up and went around to each set of patterns and discussed what goes next, the core and then renamed the patterns using letter of the alphabet. If you have time tonight please show the patterns below to your child and have them rename the pattern with the letters of the alphabet, what comes next and then ask them what the core of the pattern is (for the first pattern renaming using letters (ABC, ABC etc), what comes next (blue), the pattern core is ( blue, green, yellow).
In language we have started our Word Wall program.The word wall words for this week can be found on the blog and in your child’s agenda on Mondays. 5 words (I, can, see, like, play) were introduced today. Each week there will be 5 new words. A list of the words for the year will be given out on Thursday. On Monday the students will write the new words in their agenda. From Tuesday to Friday they will write the words in their word wall notebook that we will keep at school. On Friday the words will be placed on the class word wall. By Friday each student should be able to read these words. Please have your child practice reading and printing these words at home each night (Perhaps on Monday night they can read the words to you, on Tuesday night they could print the words and read them to you, on Wednesday night they could say each word in a sentence and on Thursday they could print them and read them). Many students will need extra printing practice ,at home, so this would be a good chance to have them work on their printing skills. If you have time tonight please ask your child to read this week's word wall words to you and then tell you a sentence using the word can.
In Religion this week we will be working through the Samaritans on the Digital Road lessons which talk what it means to be a good citizen and how we are good citizens on the internet. Today we used the bible story the Good Samaritan to talk about what a good citizen does. Ask your child how they can be a good citizen.
Have a great evening.
