Oh, well, pregnancy brain slipped into my life last week! I didn't write a  blog for you!! Please accept my apologies!

I sent home interims on Friday for those children who are currently receiving a 1 or 2 in reading, writing or math, or in work habits and conduct. If you didn't receive one, your child is currently on benchmark in all areas!
Just a reminder that you should be practicing the GREEN sight word list nightly! We are working very hard on our sight words because all children must read and pass the first level of guided reading books by the first of December! This is a level B, or 1-2. These 1-2 books are FULL of sight words!!
Even if your child has surpassd the first couple of lists in his/her sight word book, these are vital sight words to practice and practice....and practice some more!

FYI, we have PE this week :) Wear sneakers every day!

Here are some important dates to jot down:
Thursday, November 7th: Dave the Bird Man visits WSES

Here's what we are up to in our busy classroom this week!

Thematic Unit: Community Helpers

Readers study patterns in books and talk about them in our community

Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds (phonemes). Blend and segment onsets and rimes of single syllable spoken words.

Iso)late and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant, or CVC) words * (This does not include CVCs ending with /l/, /r/, or /x/

Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words. Read common high frequency words by sight (e.g., the, to, you, she, my, is, are, do)

With prompting and support, describe the connection between two individuals, events, ideas, or plieces of information in a text.

Writing with opinions
Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose opinion pieces in which they tell a reader the topic or the name of the book they are writing about and state an opinion or preference about the topic or book.

With guidance and support from adults, respond to questions and suggestions from peers and add details to strengthen writing as needed.

Compose and Decompose numbers 11-19

Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, countout that many objects.

Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies.

Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals

Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each composition or decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 18 is 10 and 8); understand that these numbers are composed of ten ones and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.

I hope you have a wonderful week!
