Reading-Ettabetta's Radish Patch and The Patch-it-up-Shop
We are still working on words with the "ch" sound including those that we spell "tch". This week we have added words with the "sh" sound. We are also working on personal and possessive pronouns.
Spelling Words: fish, wish, rush, brush, I, my, she, her, he, his
The first four words are our pattern words and the last six words are memory words. The reason we have the word, I, on the spelling test is to get students in the habit of capitalizing I when it is by itself.
Writing: Draw and write about something you did. Capitalize place names and edit sentences that have errors.
Math: Chapter 3-We are learning different ways to add-Counting on, using a number line, and using touch points. If you have never heard of touch math please watch this video on you tube. youtu.be/_ScFPmvLQ1Y
