Curriculum for the week of February 16th - 19th

Math--Students will be creating and writing their own word problems when given a number sentence. For example, if I give the number sentence "12-7=5" a student might write the following word problem...

"I got 12 candy hearts for Valentines. I ate 7 of them. How many candy hearts do I have left?"


Reading--Visualize the story as students are reading. This is a reading strategy that helps build comprehension (understanding). We tell students to pretend they are making a movie of the book as they are reading. Visualizing while reading will help students remember what they are reading.


Grammar--adverbs to tell when (for example: now, first, last, early, yesterday, tomorrow, today, later...) We will focus on using these adverbs in our writing this week.


Science--identify and describe a variety of natural sources of water, including streams, lakes, and oceans


Social Studies--Identify contributions of historical figures. We will focus on the contributions of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
