  • Students will be learning identify words that name actions and words that name persons, places, or things.
  • They will also connect the meaning of a well-known story or fable to personal experiences.

Numbers and Operations

  • Students will use concrete and pictorial models to compose and decompose numbers up to 120.
  • They will also learn how to use place value to compare whole numbers up to 120 using comparative language.

Earth and Space

  • Students will observe, describe, compare, and sort rocks by size, shape, color, and texture.
  • Also, students will describe and provide examples of ways rocks, soil, and water are useful.


  • Students will locate places using the four cardinal directions.
  • They will also describe the location of self and objects relative to other locations in the classroom and school.
