What We’re Learning This Week:
Math-We will be learning about place value and decomposing numbers this week into tens and ones. We will also spiral back to adding and subtracting to 20. Please continue to work on this at home. If they don’t use it, they lose it!
Reading– This week we will start focusing more upon reading passages and answering comprehension questions from these passages. We will practice highlighting the most important details in a passage in order to more easily answer the questions related to the passage.
Phonics- This week’s phonic’s skill will be words ending in “-ck” as in “struck” and “quack.”
Writing-We will continue writing our Informational pieces this week on an animal of their choice as well as about Thomas Jefferson. We are “hitting our stride” with writing and they are all making huge gains!
Social Studies-We will continue learning about our brilliant founding father, and former president, Thomas Jefferson!! This is such a great and important unit for the students and we will learn just how difficult it was to create something as great as America!!
S.T.E.M.-This week we will be engaging in a building challenge. Students will be given building blocks, as well as the specifications of what they need to build (i.e. the specific structure, weight it needs to hold, its height.) Students will get various opportunities to create different structures. Our budding engineers will really enjoy STEM this week!
