What we are learning…

Math: We will work on a 3-D shape book and begin math stations which will review concepts learned throughout the year.

Word Study: Our sight word this week is have. We will continue to work with the L-Blends and R-blends. We will begin the S-blends. Finishing up our magic “e” work, we will sort long and short vowel sound words.

Writing: Students will write what they see after observing our green bean plant. They will use their knowledge of plants to create an original piece of informational writing.

Reading: Students will continue to be assessed with their Rainbow Words and nonsense words. We will stop switching classrooms for our guided reading groups. The class will be divided into 4 reading groups that will meet every other day starting Wednesday. They will continue to practice their reading strategies, do word work, and do writing activities with their books.

Science: Last week we discussed the difference between living and non living things. This week we will identify the parts of a plant, what a plant needs, and learn about the plant life cycle. A green bean seed is growing in our classroom for observation and to make connections with these concepts.

Congratulations to the AM class for filling their marble jar last week! They voted for bubble recess.
