GRADE
Dear Parents,
In Week 14 (December 14th December 18th ) we will be working on:

English:
Reading: Read decodable readers
The Flag and The Plan.
Phonics: Consonant clusters with l
example: clap- clock climb ,etc..
Grammar: Adjectives and describing
words
Writing: To write sentences using
words with clusters.

Math:
This week in math we are building on the part/part/whole
relationship. When subtracting, you begin with a whole group.
You then take away part of that group and the answer you end
up with is the other part of the group that makes the whole.
(When adding, you begin with two parts to get the whole.)
Adding part + part = whole
Subtraction whole part = part

Please encourage your child to see this relationship while


working on the homework ask them which are the parts and
which is the whole. This week we will be introducing the idea
that addition and subtraction are inverse operations, which the
children will find challenging. The children will come to
understand that addition and subtraction are opposites that
undo each other.
e.g. Start with 7, add 3 and we get 10. Now subtract 3 from 10 and we get
back to 7.
