This week we will be sharing our nonfiction books and teaching others what we have learned about mammals.

Phonics - This week we will also focus on the sound spellings for /ou/, /ow/, and /kn/.

I have added the RAZ-Kids website below for easy access. This is a great way to increase the volume your child is reading, as well as work on comprehension.


We will be finishing up our nonfiction book about mammals. We will include a table of contents and bold words. Our focus is finding the most interesting facts about our mammals, not just the common things we already know. We are also working really hard on remembering to put capital letters at the beginning of our sentences and punctuation marks at the end!

We will also introduce amphibians this week.


We will begin a unit on place value with recognizing numbers as groups of tens and ones.

Practicing the math facts to 10 is beneficial in all areas of math. Please cut apart the flash cards sent home in the homework folder and use them during the week to practice all math facts, addition and subtraction.

Social Sciences

This week we will be studying amphibians.
