CAMP ACADEMICS

Reading

What do I do if I am reading, and I don't remember what I have read? We are working on strategies to help us with this question. We worked on stopping and thinking about what has been read. If that doesn't help, they know to go back and reread.

We are also working on asking ourselves questions: Does what I read make sense? Is what I read in the picture on the page?

Math

We are working on one more than and one less than. We are matching an amount to the number that it represents. We are also working on place value - tens and ones. Any help you can give your child with this will help tremendously.

Science

We are working on states of matter. We are focusing on solids and liquids at this time.

Social Studies

We are working on being a responsible person at school and in our community. As the students move up in the grade levels, they will learn about civic responsibilities, rights, and privileges.

PEARLS of WISDOM
