Coming Up Next Week
Next week, students will hear stories about spring and use what they have learned to enrich their literacy learning. Students will also be introduced to informational writing. They will learn how to write information about something they know about as well as explore text features (table of contents, cut-aways, captions, etc.). In math, students will continue to explore concepts about addition. We will focus on exploring number combinations for numbers through 10 using objects, fingers, drawings, etc. Finally, in science, students will learn about the characteristics of living and non-living things and begin their study of animals.
