Math Time Fun


Making connections while reading helps us to understand our books. This week we will focus on text- to-self connections (relating books to our lives.) We will focus on the letter sounds sh, th, ch, and tch during our word building activities this week.

Please continue to practice the sight word lists coming home in the homework pocket of the TEAM book, as well as the fluency passage.


This week we will focus on a good beginning, as well as adding descriptive details to our personal narratives. We will continue to use the Little Critter books as our models.


We will continue to use the "counting on" strategy as a way to add. We will also take a closer look at doubles and doubles plus 1.

Social Sciences

We will be making our maps of Trussville. Please send in any supplies that you think will be helpful!
