Practice on "Spelling City"

Reading and Writing

We will read some fun books about chickens this week, as we learn about these spring animals and review character and plot.

In writing, students will learn to include descriptive adjectives in their writing to "spice it up" and write a narrative about a chicken with a beginning, middle, and end.


We will continue to learn about money. This week we will practice exchanging coins, making change, and counting small collections of coins. Students will also learn some important lessons about financial literacy.


We will conclude our unit about change on Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday, we will begin our classification unit. Each student will need to bring in a small "trinket" by Wednesday. It should not be something of value, or something fragile, and it should fit inside a ziplock bag.
