January 21, 2014


See what we're learning.
Talk and share with your child about the day.
Review and give extra help and practice if needed.

Today in First Grade

Phonics:

We did a worksheet to practice the five different word making skills we have learned so far:
1- One consonant that guards a short vowel.    (ham,  mat,  sit,  bug,  hid)
2- Two consents that guard a short vowel.  (rock,  bath,  with,  dish)
3- No consonants or anything following a vowel.  The vowel would make the long sound.  (go,  he,  we,  she, ho, I, sky)
4- A quiet "e" at the end with a consonant that it "jumps over" to make the other vowel say the long sound.  (cake,  made,  bike,  tide,  hose, bride.) 
5- Adjacent vowels, two vowels right next to each other where the second one is quiet and the first makes the long sound. (rain,  teeth,  boat,  blue,  lie.)

Reading Groups:   
(I am sorry that I have been forgetting to take a picture of the books.  I will try harder to remember.)

Group A:   People Who Save Animals

Group B:    Going Shopping     The Lost Mother

Group C:     Who's That Knocking?

Math:

 Today we learned about counting by 10.  We counted by ten starting with 0...10...20...30...40...50...
And we counted by ten starting with any other number  2...12...22...32...42...52...62...    or  9...19...29...39...49...59...  We also started with larger numbers like 54...64...75...84...   And we did it all the way up to 120.  


Word Play:

Our word play did words that made the long O sound.   We have learned four "official" ways that we can make the long O sound.  We will learn a couple more ways later.
