Dear Santa Letters
The weekly will be publishing our letters to Santa. Keep an eye out for this. Children are very excited that they will be famous! :)
Children interacted with informational texts to determine the main idea.
The main idea is what the text is MOSTLY about. Children learned to look for clues to help them when trying to figure out the main idea. These clues include:
- Look at the title
- Look at the headings
- Look for words that are repeated throughout the text
- Sometimes the main idea is stated in the first sentence.
Some children are having a difficult time spelling their last name. Having your child practice this would be beneficial. I like to have children practice spelling in a sand tray, using paint or having them write the word in different colors. Make it fun! Please look for correct capitalization. Some children are still sneaking in capital letters in the middle of their first name.
