Ms. Lueders Bulletin

WEEK 5: SEPTEMBER 25 - SEPTEMBER 29, 2016

WHAT WE'RE LEARNING

Math: We're learning that counting tells how many things are in a set. When counting a set of objects, the last word in the counting sequence names the quantity. We are using one-to-one correspondence from 0-20. Students describe objects, express relationships, make predictions, and solve problems as they build an understanding of numbers. Recognize instantly the amount of a small group of objects.


Reading: The students will be able to make predictions based on the cover, title, and illustrations; identify that a sentence is made up of words. Generate rhymes orally. Identify common sounds that letters represent.


Popcorn Word: The popcorn word being introduced this week is the word "The".

Interesting Words: We continue writing our names and doing environmental print.


Writing: We're learning how to form letters from left-to-right and top-to-bottom. Every letter has an upper case and lowercase. Phonological knowledge can be used to match letters to sounds. Students will write their own name. Students will identify high frequency words. Understand and use parts of speech in reading, writing, and speaking: pronouns.


Science: Students will know that energy, force, and motion are related and are part of their everyday life.


Social Studies: We're learning about communities - our school community and our neighborhood community.
