This Weeks Sight Words: 
  • make, will, am, me, pretty
Jakob is continuing to review his previous sight words and does well picking them out in books we read!  We have been working on reading Level A books at home using Reading A-Z.  I lucked into getting many of the books a few years ago while working on my degree.  They were running a special during Teacher Appreciation Week and was able to download many of the books!  Jakob enjoys reading them and the books are repetitious in manner with many of his sight words!

Other sight words we are working on:

  • List 1 - 2: we, run, a, can, play, I 
  • List 3 - 4: like, cat, to, and, dog
  • List 5 - 6: the, not, you, do, want
  • List 7 - 8: all, here, big, is, little
  • List 9 - 10: she, with, are, he, funny
  • List 11- 12: make, will, am, me, pretty
Jakob is currently doing Jump Rope for Heart.  He is raising money to support a great cause.  I think it's neat how I did Jump Rope for Heart when I was in school.  Jakob has talked about jump roping in school and how it's hard!  If he raises a minimum of $40, he will receive a water bottle, a jump rope, and t-shirt.  I can see him playing with the jump rope on the back patio!  Visit his page to make a donation.

Here are a few pages from last week.  

It looks like he forgot to do number 5 on the below sheet.
 Jakob colored this worksheet really nice and counted the teeth correctly.

I haven't asked Jakob about this page.  I suspect it is related to a book or something they did in class.
Jakob also brought home a picture that was from school of him and his decorated pumpkin!
