Curriculum Notes

We are working on cause and effect in Reading. Sometimes one event in a story makes another event happen. We are also working on sequencing in stories because paying attention to order of events is a critical comprehension skills.

In Math, we have a focus on time on digital and analog clocks as well as the concept of a.m. and p.m., picture graphs, bar graphs, and telling and writing.
