This month...

In Reading...

We will be learning that super readers have the power to retell!

Encourage scholars to tell you about what they have read in their own words!

In Phonics...

New Snap Word(s): here, is, this

Snap Words to review: a, me, the, I, like, my, at, look, see

Work with scholars on being able to read these words quickly!

Snap words are not meant to be sounded out...students need to know them on sight!

In writing...

We are learning to be story tellers and tell true stories!


In Math...

We are learning about weight and comparing objects to discover which is heavier and which is lighter or if objects weigh the same. We are also measuring weight using a balancing scale.

As we move forward through the month, we will begin measuring volume and comparing containers to see which holds more and which holds less.

We are learning about school.

We are discussing things that happen where we go to school, things that happen in schools around the world, and are having discussions to compare and contrast what we notice.
