Mrs. Wells' Reader
This Week's Focus
Reading-We are working on cause and effect, main idea, asking questions, determining important information while reading, and point of view.
Writing-The students will begin writing down interview questions that they will ask while on our field trip on May 1st.
Social Studies- We will continue to look at wants versus needs, and then look at local businesses to determine if they fulfill a want or a need.
Math-We are beginning our fraction unit this week. We will work with fractions on number lines and word problems.
Fundations-Students will learn how to read and spell r-controlled syllables in isolation and when combined with other syllable types. They will also learn there is an exception to the r-controlled rule: If the r is followed by another r, the preceding vowel is often short. In the second week, they will learn additional sounds for ar and or. They will later learn that the 1-1-1 spelling rule applies to r-controlled words.
