Coming up next week....
Reading - We will be working on comparing and contrasting stories this week. We will read two different stories and decide what is the same and what is different about the stories.
Spelling - New spelling lists were sent home on Monday. Your child will be tested over these words and the below sight words on Friday, March 13th.
Our sight words for the next 2 weeks will be:
first, new, try, must, start
Writing - We will continue working on our fiction writing for our Young Author books. We have been focusing on reading our story as the reader would not just as the writer. We will continue to talk about adjectives and how they help the reader to see a story the way the writer sees it.
Math - We will continue looking at adding and subtracting groups of 10 from a two-digit number. We have learned several strategies to help us solve these problems. As always we will continue to work on those math facts as well.
Science - We will begin our next science topic which will focus on soil. We will be discussing the different types of soil as well as the characteristics of these types. We will be incorporating our butterfly garden into our science work by planting our milkweed seeds in various types of soil and trying to determine which soil the seeds will grow best in.
