We will work with short and long /e/ sounds and the letter Ee and practice the comprehension skill, setting. Check out the new Family Times newsletter in your child’s folder. Please practice high frequency word cards.
For Math, we will continue with Topic 8; Understanding Subtraction. Students will act out and solve subtraction word problems, will use the minus sign to represent take away situations when recording subtraction, will use the equal sign, subtract, and write the difference.
