Winslow's Weekly Update

What's Happening in Room B-4

Reading

This week is week 3 of learning how to make connections and inferences. We will be reading our Readers Theater called Humpty Dumpty's Fall. Our phonics lesson will focus on the long a digraphs. (ai and ay) We will use words like day, say, gray, chain, sail, rain...)

In grammer, we will focus on number words. This will be a review as we have also done this in math.

Math

We will learn about measuring things using inches this week. We will use what we know about graphing and combine measurement in some of our comparisons. We will learn about some shapes like parallelogram, trapezoid and hexagons.
