Title I Compacts
What We Are Learning
I will continue with small reading groups, teaching students strategies for learning to read. The rest of the class works independently during Daily 5.
By the end of this quarter, students should be able to count to 50. Some students have already met their end of year goal to get to 100 and are helping to support friends who still need practice. We will continue with number comparison this week and begin discussing teen numbers. On most Fridays we discuss shapes and explore shapes in center activities.
Our class will continue to explore movement during science center. A new activity from Dancing Bear Toy Shop will be added called Gravity Maze. We studied and explored gravity last week so this will be a great follow-up activity.
Fundations is our phonics program for learning the name and sound of all the letters of the alphabet. We have 4 letters left to learn!
We have been working on opinion writing. The class has enjoyed writing on topics such as their favorite toy, animal and play center!
