Our Reading Program incorporates phonics, spelling, writing skills, handwriting, grammar, and reading. Our spelling words are words we are working on in reading. The spelling test will be on the last day of the week.

Math Math

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) using an online program called Xtra Math. 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.
