Weekly Curriculum Update

READING-

Foundational: For the remainder of the school year, we will be reviewing concepts that we have learned over the past year. We will be reviewing concepts of CVC words, digraphs, glued sounds, blends, syllable types (closed, vowel-consonant-e, open), and suffixes (-s, -ed, -ing). We will be playing games that reinforce these concepts.

Literature: For the remainder of the year, we will be reviewing reading strategies that we have learned this year to help us read and understand words. We will be reviewing comprehension strategies and working on our reading expression and fluency.


WRITING-

We will be continuing to learn about informational writing and how we can use non-fictional literature to help us structure our informational writing pieces. We will be working on our informational writing reports this week. The kids are very excited about finishing their reports!


MATH-

Cubs: Cubs will be reviewing what they have learned this year about number fluency, adding, subtracting, math mountains, and place value. They will be using their knowledge of tens and ones to solve math problems with tens frames.

Bears: Bears will end the year with learning about adding with two digits addition with place value in mind. We will be reviewing what we have learned about place value and we will be applying that knowledge to adding two digit numbers together.
