READING-HIGH FREQUENCY WORDS PRACTICE

This week in Reading we did a variety of activities to help students review high frequency words. Students pretended to have a race track, and would drive a small car to the right word as fast as they could. It is my goal this year to incorporate as much PLAY while learning as we can! I sent the "race track" home in their blue take home folder. Parents can call out a word and their child can drive their car to the word. Students also did word work in sand.

HIGH FREQUENCY WORDS: can, at, the, look, my, the, my, red, blue, yellow, I, see, a

NUMBER WORDS: zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten

COLOR WORDS: pink, orange, white, black, gray, purple, brown, green

MATH-ENGAGE NY

We are using the Engage NY Math program. We are currently in MODULE A, LESSON 3. For in-depth details about each lesson this year, please reference their website here which has each day's lesson plans, examples, and videos. There is a wealth of information (may even be too much information at first), but I did want you to know where you can get more information if you need it!

SOCIAL STUDIES-National Anthem

We will be reading the history and meaning of the National Anthem in class and discussing it. There is some tricky vocabulary we will attack. Here is a great visual with clues to help students learn the words to the National Anthem.

SCIENCE-BODY VENTURES

We are excited to have the Body Ventures exhibit visit Lincoln School on Thursday! This will be a fun interactive way for students to tour the human body. More information and pictures about this unique opportunity can be found on their website!
The week of September 8-11 is a BLACK Week, specials are as follows:
