What We’re Learning This Week:
Math-This week will will start comparing numbers using place value. Students will have to understand the different values of tens and ones to do this successfully.
Reading– This week we will be comparing and contrasting the experiences and adventures of characters in the different stories that they read. We will be reading different versions of some familiar stories to do this.
Phonics- This week we will be learning about words with the ai/ay spelling patterns such as in wait and stay.
Writing-We will continue writing about our opinions about a variety of different topics. We are focusing on how when we write our opinion pieces, our goal is to convince our readers. All of our writing pieces need to have a topic sentence, 3 supporting reasons, as well as a closing sentence. We will also be focusing on be able to independently make revisions to our writing.
Social Studies-We will start learning about accomplishments of President Theodore Roosevelt.
S.T.E.M.- This week we will start discussing the key aspects of an animal’s winter home. Next week we will be building these homes. Students have already started thinking of ideas for the materials they will need to do this and I told them they can start collecting these items at home. Please be on the lookout for a letter to come home requesting these items next week.
Have a wonderful week!
