It was great to see you all for parent/teacher conferences this past Friday! As always, please reach out if there is anything you need from me! If you did not come in, then please email me and we can schedule a time to meet! For a clip up this week, please have your child write a sentence using commas in a series (example: I saw lions, elephants, and bears at the zoo.) Remind them to use a capital at the beginning and punctuation at the end.
- PLEASE label all coats, jackets, hats, and other winter accessories with your child’s first and last name.
- Reading every night for 20 minutes (This includes sight words and reading group books that are coming home each night. Please return the books each day with your child.)
- Math fact sheet each night
Last week we:
- Practiced and tested on -ide words as well as the words “they” and “what”.
- Reviewed that all proper nouns (names of people, places or things) need to be capitalized.

This week we will:
- Identify and practice words with the long o (-one) pattern.
