Learning Targets

Reading:

*I can read accurately and fluently to support comprehension within grade level text.

*I can describe key ideas and details in literary text.

We continued to work on summarizing. We have been using this strategy: someone (character) wanted, but (problem), so (how they solved the problem), then (the conclusion).

*I know and apply grade level phonics skills and word analysis skills in decoding words.

*I can use learned spelling patterns in daily writing.

Our spelling this week focused on long vowels.

Writing:

*I can demonstrate the conventions of Standard English capitalization and punctuation.

* I can write a narrative.

We focused on zooming in on small moments and using descriptive words to describe a moment.

Math:

*I can read and write numbers to 1,000 using base ten numerals, number names and expanded form.

This week we worked on comparing numbers and explaining why a number is greater than or less than another number.

Social Studies:

*I can explain the importance of promoting the common good.

Behavior:

*I can be responsible and kind.

*I can follow directions the first time.
