Objectives:

Reading- We will:

Identify moral lessons as themes in well-known fables, legends, myths, or stories. Describe how rhyme, rhythm, and repetition interact to create images in poetry. Identify the elements of dialogue and use them in informal plays. Describe main characters in works of fiction, including their traits, motivations, and feelings. Identify the topic and explain the author's purpose in writing the text. Identify the main idea in a text and distinguish it from the topic. Locate the facts that are clearly stated in a text. Describe the order of events or ideas in a text.Use text features (e.g., table of contents, index, headings) to locate specific information in text. Compare different versions of the same story in traditional and contemporary folktales with respect to their characters, settings, and plot. Distinguish between fiction and nonfiction. Recognize that some words and phrases have literal and non-literal meanings (e.g., take steps).


Writing- We will:

Write brief compositions about topics of interest to the student. Write short letters that put ideas in a chronological or logical sequence and use appropriate conventions (e.g., date, salutation, closing.) Write brief comments on literary or informational texts.


Math- We Will:

use concrete and pictorial models to compose and decompose numbers up to 1,200. 2.2 B use standard, word, and expanded forms to represent numbers up to 1,200. Generate a number that is greater than or less than a given whole number up to 1,200. Use place value to compare and order whole numbers up to 1,200 using comparative language, numbers, and symbols (<,>, or =). Add up to four two-digit numbers and subtract two-digit numbers using mental strategies and algorithms based on knowledge of place value and properties of operations. Solve one-step and multi-step word problems involving addition and subtraction within 1,000 using a variety of strategies based on place value, including algorithms. Generate and solve problem situations for a given mathematical number sentence involving addition and subtraction of whole numbers within 1,000. Represent and solve addition and subtraction word problems where unknowns may be any one of the terms in the problem. Find the length of objects using concrete models for standard units of length. Describe the inverse relationship between the size of the unit and the number of units needed to equal the length of an object. Represent whole numbers as distances from any given location on a number line. Determine the length of an object to the nearest marked unit using rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, or measuring tapes. Determine a solution to a problem involving length, including estimating lengths. Read and write time to the nearest oneā€minute increment using analog and digital clocks and distinguish between a.m. and p.m.


Science-We will:

Observe, record, and compare how the physical characteristics and behaviors of animals help them meet their basic needs. Observe, record, and compare how the physical characteristics of plants help them meet their basic needs.



Social Studies- We Will learn about:
