Language Arts

This week, we are digging deeper into sentence structure and the writing process. We will continue to focus on capitalization, punctuation, spacing, and paragraphs, as well as introduce revising and editing to our writing. In reading, we will continue practicing our reading strategies. Our spelling this week will focus on on the "ir," er," and "ur" spelling patterns.


In math, we will be applying the addition and subtraction strategies we have been learning to solve basic addition and subtraction word problems. Some of these strategies include counting on, number lines, drawing pictures, standard form. We will also be learning about missing addends and fact families.

Science / Social Studies

This week, we will be learning about American symbols, Some of these symbols include the flag, the bald eagle, the liberty bell, and the statue of liberty. We will also begin to learn about timelines, which we will continue to learn about next week when we talk about famous Americans.
