Curriculum

Reading

This week in reading we are going to be reading the nonfiction book The Remarkable Adaptable Turtle. The main skill that we are going to be working on is summarizing. By summarizing we understand and remember more of the important information. In order to make this fun the children will be introduce to two turtle characters that will help them to learn this important skill. I have been making up small cards (like baseball cards) with each skill we have been learning and the kids have been putting the cards on a ring. Hopefully by having these rings of skills it will help them to remember. They really like the cards and the different characters!

Math

In Math this week we will be learning about the following:

  • frames and arrows having two rules
