Curriculum Peek

Math: We will be starting Topic 2 this week. This topic will be over the meaning and properties of addition and subtraction.


ELA/SS: Students will be reading about The American Indians. They will compare and contrast different tribes and the differences between today and back then. We will finish our community poster this week and begin learning about the history of Shawnee.


Spelling/Vocab: Your child will receive their second spelling list today. You should receive a copy in your child's Monday folder, as well as, a list copied into your child's agenda. The pattern this week: initial consonant blends with short vowels. Students will also be responsible to study the meaning of the 10 vocabulary words from this week and last week. The test will have the students match the word to the correct definition and choose 5 of the words to put into complete sentences that show their understanding of the word. This is something we have been working on in class. Both spelling and vocabulary tests will be on Friday.


Writing: We will be starting an opinion piece this week. Students will fill out an O.R.E.O. graphic organizer for their paragraph.
