We are beginning to learn about our long vowels.  Please watch for a long vowel letter to come home in your child’s clear envelope.  Keep it handy to use for practice.  Long vowel e uses these patterns:  ee, ea, and y.  We see those patterns in words like:  feet, meat, and baby.


Nouns name a person, place, animal, or thing.  Examples include:  baker, park, kitten, and mug.  Practice finding nouns in your world around you.

Verbs are action words.  They tell what someone or something does.  Examples include:  eat, jump, and sleep.  Practice finding verbs in your world around you.

Adjectives are describing words.  They describe a noun.  Examples include:  big, soft, sour, blue, etc.

A sentence expresses a complete thought.  Example:  My cat naps.  Non-example:  My cat.

The Naming Part of a sentence is also called the Subject.  It tells who or what the sentence is about.  An example is :  One dog eats.  The naming part is “One dog”.  Practice finding Naming Parts in sentences.

The Telling Part of a sentence is also called the Predicate.  It tells us what the person or thing is doing.  An example is:  The ball rolls away.  The telling part is “rolls away”.  Practice finding Telling Parts in sentences.

A Telling Sentence begins with a capital letter and ends with a period.  It gives us information.

An Asking Sentence asks a question.  It begins with a capital letter and ends with a question mark.

An Exclamatory Sentence begins with a capital letter and ends with an exclamation point.  It expresses emotion.

Proper Nouns name the specific name of a person, place, or thing.  Examples include:  Mr. Brown, Jacksonville Zoo, and Beach Blvd.

Singular nouns do not have an s at the end:  book, cat, and cup.  Plural nouns have an s at the end to name more than one:  books, cats, and cups.


Our new spelling words are listed below:

plug, block, clock, flag, glove, plate, blouse, clap, flat, globe



We are learning how to write our D’Nealian letters.

Religion –

  • The Last meal Jesus shared with His followers was the Last Supper.
  • Here, Jesus gave us the gift of Himself.
  • At the Last Supper, Jesus told His followers to “do this in memory of me.”
  • The Eucharist is the sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ.
  • We worship God and give thanks for the gift of Christ’s Body and Blood at mass.
  • We remember what Jesus said and did at the Last Supper.
  • A priest leads the celebration at Mass.
  • We praise God by singing and praying.


Practice identifying numbers from 1-100.  We will recognize, count, and order numbers.  Practice finding numbers before, between, and right after.

We are building addition sentences with sums up to 20.  The two numbers being added are called addends.  The answer you get when adding is called the sum.

We are learning our subtraction facts.  We begin with a whole number and subtract a part.  The other part left is called the difference.

We are learning about Related Addition and Subtraction Facts.  These are called Fact Families.  An example is:  2+4=6, 4+2=6, 6-4=2, and 6-2=4.

Graphs help us gather and compare information collected.  Real graphs use real objects.  Picture graphs use pictures.  Pictographs use symbols.  Bar graphs display information collected using a colored bar.

We are learning about two digit numbers.  The number 54 has 5 tens and 4 ones.

Shapes are all around us!  Find them in your world.

We are beginning to study money and time.  Please practice counting and identifying coins at home.  Practice telling time to the hour and to the half hour.
