We will continue working on /g/, /j/, /dge/, /u/, /z/, /zz/ and /s/ sounds. We will read “Jobs”, “Dot and Bob”, and “Trees Help” in our hardback reader. Our reading strategy this week will focus on the characters and beginning, middle, and end of a story (retelling). We are learning to make connections to stories (text to self, text to world, and text to text.) Our vocabulary words are aid, persistent, horrible, presented, invigorated, and sweltering. (The vocabulary words will not be tested individually.) In writer’s workshop we will focus on writing about characters and how they think and feel. We will use drama to bring stories to life.

Math: (NBT1, OA1, OA3, OA4, OA1, OA5, OA6, OA7, and OA8)

Students will read, write and count numbers 1 to 40. We will continue to practice with number bonds.The main focus for the week will be learning to "count on" to add. We will also learn to solve word problems in our math journal both addition and subtraction.

Science/Social Studies

Community Flyers

Look for the Community Activity Stand in our school! Students and parents can get an update of community events and activities from information on the Community Activity Stand. Information that is age-appropriate for our students will be available for anyone interested in after-school activities, extra-curricular activities, and community events. Parents and students are invited to stop by the stand and pick up any information that may interest you. The stand is located by the car line door.
