This week we continued to review the short vowels during our phonics time. We are so impressed with their ability to blend CVC ( consonant, vowel, consonant) words and their eagerness to read! We are becoming letter sleuths as we begin to unlock the secret of certain letter combinations. Ask your child to tell you about /qu/ and /th/. If they stick out their tongue for the latter, they are doing the right thing!

Our science deep dive took us under the sea as we explored ocean creatures and the depth of the ocean. We began a booklet on Habitats and learned there are habitats all over the world! We also began painting the different levels of the ocean.

In Kids in the Kitchen, Mr. McFadden took the kids behind the scene of cooking and made individual chef hats. It has been a FUN week in First Grade!

Have a wonderful weekend,

Danielle and Karen
