What are we doing next week?
Reading: We will describe the characters in a story and explain the reason for their actions so that I can understand the story.
Writing: We will use descriptive words so that I can make my writing clearer.
Social Studies: Draw and write to compare a custom or tradition in your community with a custom or tradition from another community.
Math: We will show teen numbers on a ten frame, so I can show teen numbers in more than one way. We will review different ways to show teen numbers and 20, so I can count forward from any number between 11-20.
Science: We will identify the stages of the plant life cycle so I can understand how plants grow and change.
Phonetic Skill: CVC
