Fundations: This week we are continuing with closed syllables. We will also focus on vowel teams (ai, ay, ee, ea, ey).

Writing: We are learning about how we can improve our writing using more details. We will work on editing.

Math: We are focusing on comparing numbers using greater than/less than/equal to this week.

Science: We will start our unit on the solar system the first week of March.

Social Studies: We will learn about president's day on Monday and introduce habit 4 later in the week.
