In Reading...

We are asking many questions in reading! They include: What is a main idea and details? What sound does this letter make? How do I use pictures /patterns to understand what I read? Do we write a letter for each sound we hear? What are word families? How many sounds do we hear in these words? What is a paragraph? Why do we need to learn new words? How do we write words? What are story elements?

Writing

The student begins to understand the principles of writing by creating writing on the website www.switcheroozoo.com.

Students will use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose informative/explanatory texts in which they name what they are writing about and supply some information about the topic.

Math

Students will identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies. Students will compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals.

In Social Studies...

The student will describe American culture by explaining diverse community and family celebrations and customs. We will explore holiday traditions of students in our class, community, and countries abroad!
