What are we learning?
Language Arts and Social Studies
In language arts, we have been focusing on story structure and plot. In spelling, we are currently working on words with l- blends (bl, cl, pl) and will be working on words with final blends (-nd, -st, -nt, -sk). In writer’s workshop have been focusing on learning different strategies to use when writing independently, In grammar, we are learning about different types of punctuation and when to use them.
In social studies, we've been discussing the responsibilities of being a good citizen at school, at home, and in the community. Next week, we will be talking about U.S. symbols and the importance of The Pledge of Allegiance.
We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. You can support your child’s learning by talking with your child about this unit and encouraging her/him to ask questions and think hard. We are looking forward to our Music Makers embarking on their journey of learning!
