Week 10 Uppercase Letters are: T, F, H, K!

Oh dear we have fallen behind on posting our comments on time.  We only have 4 weeks left so let’s finish strong!  As soon as your child learns the uppercase letter that starts their name, they can begin writing their name in cursive in class!!  When you leave a comment on this post, you can tell us something you noticed, something you are proud of or something you are still struggling with.  Don’t forget to leave a comment so we know that you completed your homework.  I loved the comments that have detail (specifics) AND followed the rules of writing!

Second Step

This week we applied the STEP problem solving strategy!  We learned that when you explore consequences of each solution, you could realize you either don’t agree on a solution and or you may need to try to come up with new ideas.  We also learned the importance of compromise so you can get back to your activity in a timely manner.
