Students will work on making a collage with circles and work with showing numbers on a 10-frame.  We are also working on counting down from a certain number.  The goal is to could down from 20, and we’re counting down from 13.


Our new Superkid character is Doc.  Doc likes to fix broken toys.  She will teach us about the letter Dd and its sound, /d/, at the beginning of words.  With all of our letters we’ve learned so far, students should be blending some words.  Here are some example words to blend together and read:  Doc, Dad, odd, add, dog, cog (a part of a wheel), and cod. 

We also have been starting to learn about comprehension strategies to use when reading.  Our first strategy is metacognition, which means to think about your thinking.  We do this automatically!  It’s when we predict, question, wonder, go back and read a part of a text.  Our next comprehension strategy is schema.  Schema is everything you know about a certain topic.  We use this strategy when we pick up a book and take a quick picture walk to get our brains thinking about the story.  We activate in our brains on what the story might be about.


Cc (/k/ as in cat), Oo, Gg (/g/ as in gorilla), Dd
