Next week, we are learning...
In reading and writing, we will celebrate Penguin & Polar Bear week! We will be reading fiction and nonfiction texts about the animals. With the fiction texts, students will be responding to the story by writing the characters, setting, and major events. For the nonfiction texts, students will do informational writing about what they learned. We will be finishing our study of vowels (a,e,i,o,u) next week. Please review these sounds with your child at home.
In math, we will use the words greater, less than, and equal to when comparing numbers. We will also introduce our study of place value, by using hands-on manipulatives to make numbers from 11 - 19 (i.e. the number 11 is made of a group of ten and one more).
In science, we will be studying living and nonliving things. Students will be learning about characteristics of animals (animal body parts, how animals move, & how animals grow and change).
