  • Reading - This week we will begin learning how to make predictions about texts.
  • Writing - We will review author's purpose and structure.

  • Math - This week we will begin adding ten more, and ten less.
  • Science - We will learn about investigating objects in the sky.
  • Social Studies - We will learn about our national monuments.

Spelling Words

No spelling this week.

We will have a spelling test every Friday. Then sentence is worth extra points if spelled correctly using correct capitalization and punctuation.
