What We are Learning About

Reading: We are focusing on text features of nonfiction texts. We will also learn about using the RAPS (restate, answer, prove it, sum it up) strategy.


Writing: Students will participate in shared research and writing while using the writing process: brainstorming, drafting, editing, revising, conferring, and publishing.


Fundations: We are currently focusing on spelling and marking closed syllable words with glued sounds and suffixes. We are also reading words with r-controlled vowels and vowel teams.


Math: We will focus on drawing shapes with specific attributes, such as a given number of faces or sides.


Science: We will focus on the states of matter.


Social Studies: We will focus on the purpose of government and the rolls and responsibilities of citizens.
