A Note from Mrs. Elil




The month of January sees a big leap in both Literacy and Math. During Reading Workshop we will ‘activate’ our Special Powers- Pointer Power, Reread Power, Partner Power, Picture Power, Sound Power, Snap Word Power, Persistence Power, and Book Talk Power to change into Super Readers. In Writing Workshop we will work on more strategies to write True Stories and make them better and more fun to read. We will also practice writing the upper case letters of the alphabet and tap sounds in words to read and rhyme using CVC words.

In Math we will wrap up Chapter 5 (learning number pairs for numbers 5 to 10 and writing addition sentences) and move on into Chapter 6 where we learn how to use numbers and symbols to show a subtraction sentence and how to model, draw and write to solve subtraction word problems.
