SPELLING: Students will practice the Orton-Gillingham methods of clapping out sounds in pattern words and arm tapping of red words. They will use the Decodable Book on the SmartBoard to develop reading fluency. Students will mark pages either with a CW (classwork) or HW (homework).

PHONICS: Students will continue their sixth packet on contractions. The packet is used as a combination of lessons/classwork and homework. The packet is designed to be completed as a unit and should NOT be completed in one night. They will continue to practice the Orton-Gillingham method of clapping out syllables in order to improve spelling. Pages will be marked with a CW (classwork) or HW (homework).
READING: Group setting: Students will practice pages 166 – 179 in their second readers, The Superkids Take Off. They will review the table of contents and practice picture walks. They will listen to the pages on the SmartBoard to develop word awareness.
Book Club (in class/at home): Students will continue their audiobook, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This is an at-home reading assignment where students and parents share a book together. Students will complete a response journal about the book.
Super Magazine (in class): Students have received a themed, nonfiction magazine. The first theme is What’s New. They will learn the concepts of headlines, photo captions, news articles, features, and departments.
MATH: Students have completed Chapter 9: Subtraction to the Hundreds in their second workbook. Students will review the hundreds place. They also will use addition skills to solve to the hundreds, first with no regrouping, then single and double regrouping. They will use manipulatives, as well as the SMARTBoard, to improve fluency with basic fact fluency. Please do not have children go ahead in their workbooks, as lessons are designed as classwork and homework. Pages will be marked with CW (classwork) or HW (homework). It is important that you can continue to practice facts at home as students will rely more on mental math skills. Students will bring their math books home for two nights prior to the chapter test.
