We will learn how to identify the theme of the books we are reading.


Writing

We will explore functional writing this week: invitations, lists, recipes, "how to" writing, and news reports.


Math

We will identify and learn the value of the four coins, as well as explore the relationship between coins.


Please let your child explore with any spare change you have. Have them practice using their skip counting skills to count small collections of coins.


Science/Social Studies

This week will focus on the five STAR characteristics of compassion/caring,

self-discipline/responsibility, honesty/fairness, respect/patriotism, and courage. We will learn about famous Americans who represent these characteristics - George Washington, Clara Barton, Eleanor Roosevelt, Ruby Bridges and Garrett Morgan.
