We are reading The Little Engine that Could and focusing on retelling, plot, and beginning, middle, end. We will be reviewing visualization.
Consonant blends and the H brothers (wh, ch, sh, th).
We will be learning to write letters and say kind words to each other. VALENTINES!
We will wrap up skip counting by making a skip counting book that students can practice with at home. We will be moving on to numbers through 79. Students should start seeing/understanding double digit numbers as tens (towers of cubes) and ones (individual cubes). Practice this will pennies, beans, or anything at home. It is a difficult and VERY IMPORTANT skill.
