Week of May 2-6

Hello Families!! We are very excited for our field trip coming up and all of the fun days too! Plus we are rocking our reading and math all the way up to the last day!!!

Reading- We are using our schema to make predictions this week! We are also going to be exploring "theme" in our books and the "moral" of the story! BIG 2nd grade skills!!!

Math- We have taken our end of the year assessments in 1st grade and now are going back to look for the gaps in our learning! We will be starting with a review of Fact Families and then time to the half hour!

Writing- We are making a full circle in our Writer's Workshop and coming back to where it all started this week with Small Moment Stories! These are the stories that are a zoomed in moment of something that really happened such as a vacation or a fun day at school!

Science/Social Studies- We are focusing on geography and maps in Social Studies and in Science we are working with heat and temperature. We will be making a Solar Oven this week! We need some warm days!!
