Reading

Comprehension

This week we really looked deep into Non-Fiction text and practiced "Asking Questions" using our "Question Words" (Who, What, Where, When, Why and How) to learn more about the text and topic. Our topic this week was the Moon and the Planets. I loved hearing all the kids higher-level questioning. For example some questions were; "If the moon doesn't have gravity, then how did the astronauts walk on the moon?" "If the Earth orbits the Sun, then how is there a sunset?" Amazing!

Math

Adding and Decomposing Numbers to 5

We are still working on adding using various tools as well as showing and explaining our math thinking. We will begin subtracting soon. Please continue helping your child work on writing the numbers 0-20 (especially the teen numbers) as well as recognizing the teen numbers out of sequential order. We work on these in class, however, in order to master these, we need lots of time on task and practice. Also, practice just counting to 100 by 1's!

Writing

Informational and Journal Writing

We are continuing to write Non-Fiction/Informational pieces and we have begun to write in Journals. I am so amazed and proud of their growth. See below. Amazing....
