November Updates

The DeLair Press


Wonderful things are happening in room #36…We have adjusted nicely to the new routines and procedures of virtual learning. 

What We’re Learning

-Writer’s Workshop: We have begun a new unit called ‘Show and Tell’. We are learning to ‘tell’ about various objects using our words. We are also drawing with details, labeling parts of our objects, and writing sentences about them.



-Reader’s Workshop: We are continuing to focus on emergent reading: looking closely at familiar texts. We are reading, thinking, and talking together about familiar books, as we continue to grow knowledge of early reading skills (concepts about print & letter/sound correspondence).


-FUNdations: Over the next several weeks, we will continue to learn/review letter names and sounds and proper letter formation for lower case letters.

Families, in addition to letter formation activities, you can help your child develop both sound recognition & comprehension skills at home.  A list of ideas/suggestions will be sent home with your child’s phonics homework. 

-Go Math Workshop:
Chapter 3-Represent, Count & Write Numbers 6 to 9

Chapter 4-Represent & Compare Numbers to 10
