Hello everyone! Here’s a look at where we are and where we’re going… In Fundations, we practiced the long O and U in the vowel-consonant-e formation. This week we will begin the suffix s (plurals and singular verb sense).
In Reading, we will work with fiction texts to practice asking questions before, during and after reading. We will also practice finding answers to those questions using evidence embedded in the texts.
In Writing, we will continue with “Teaching Books” (nonfiction writing). We will work on combining various writing types into a nonfiction chapter book (e.g. a how-to chapter, a fun facts chapter, etc.). We will also discuss what makes good beginnings and endings in nonfiction writing.
In Math, we will finish Topic 6, Represent and Interpret Data being that it was a short topic. Therefore, we will review and test the topic at the end of the week. I also always encourage students to practice their basic addition and subtraction facts to 20 at home to help foster growth in this important area.
In Social Studies, we will continue with our unit Where People Live. We will discuss various types of shelters. Then we will discuss map features.
In Science, we will continue our unit on Plants and Animals. We will sort animals based on parts. We will also discuss where animals live (habitats).
In Spanish, we will continue to discuss food, focusing on vegetables this week.
Some important reminders:
