What's coming up next week:
Next week we will be reading about mothers and their love for their children in honor of Mother's Day. Students will be composing sentences about their mother and responding to literature. We will also focus on animals and their offspring and how animals resemble their parents. In math, students will continue to practice subtraction with objects, fingers, images, pictures, etc. You can help your child with this concept at home by using real objects and having your child explain to you their math thinking and how he/she arrived at the correct answer. In science we will end our unit of study by discussing animals and their offspring. Students will learn the correct names of animals and their babies as well as observe how offspring resembles the parents.
