Sight Words: orange, said, in


Writing: We are beginning our Lucy Calkins writing curriculum this week in Writer's Workshop. We will be working on coming up with our own ideas, elaborating in our writing and becoming confident, independent writers. Of course, we will also continue working on using upper and lowercase letters and stretching out our words.


Reading: We will work in our small guided reading groups on comprehension and fluency.


Math: We will compare capacity, work on developing the concept of zero, representing 0 to 10 and use five and ten frames.


Social Studies: We will talk about the Christian flag.


Science: We will work on sorting matter.


Bible: We will talk about Samuel. Samuel listens to God, God want you to obey and how you can serve God.
