Reading

Our Reading Program incorporates phonics, spelling, writing skills, handwriting, grammar, and reading. We do whole class instruction and small guided reading groups. Our spelling words are words we are working on in phonics and reading.  The spelling test will be each Friday. 
 

Math

The students will have math homework almost everyday.  I will try not to send homework on Fridays.  Envisions 2.0 is problem based learning program which focuses on development of concepts.  Which means we learn best when we connect our learning to prior knowledge. We have a daily "meeting" where we learn about the calendar, telling time, counting money, and reviewing skills. Then we practice our facts (addition, subtraction and eventually multiplication). Then we have a lesson and an activity to practice the new skill. Homework will be sent home to help reinforce the new skill learned. Please be sure to check over your child's Math work each evening and let me know what problems they seem to be having trouble with.
