We are starting a Jan Brett author study and will be reading The Mitten and reviewing/learning new comprehension skills. We will also continue to read to ourselves for about 10 minutes a day. Students are doing a great job at this and look forward to it each day. They are able to sit and read from the "good fit books" for about 10 minutes.
We are going to start learning consonant blends at the beginning of words (blink sled, bring, etc.)
Students are starting to pick their own writing ideas and working on "telling more" when they write. Pretty much working on getting their wonderful words in their head onto paper.
Shapes (solid and flat)
Homes around the world books and project. Students may be bringing home their homes on Friday.
