We will learn the sound for long I spelled /i/, i_e/, /igh/, /ie/ and /y/. We will also review contractions. We will read “Mystery Of The Night Song”, “What Is in the Hedge?” and “Make Some Music” in our hardback reader. Our reading strategy this week will be making inferences. This month we will be focusing on asking questions before, during, and after reading a story.

Our vocabulary words are joy, pleased, probing, puzzling, stammered, and unrelenting. We will review words with multiple meanings. We also learn about fact and opinion writing.

Math

1.OA.6, 1.NBT.2, 1.NBT.3, 1.NBT.5

Students will be busy learning to compare numbers using the language and symbols for greater than, less than, and equal to. We will also learn to manipulate 2 digit numbers by adding and subtracting 10. We will coach the children to use a hundreds chart to think of this as a puzzle. See the photo below for a fun way to practice this skill at home.

Science/Social Studies

Did you know...?

Our students will be using research skills to find out about a topic of interest to them.

The students will be reading nonfiction literature and using websites to find out important information about their topic. Our classes have visited the library and computer lab. We are learning how to be researchers!

Stability balls in the classroom?

Our new stability balls are a big hit. The students enjoy taking turns using them as their chair. Click the link above to see the research!
