This week (1/14/19) we will be focusing on:
Retell stories, including key details, and demonstrate understanding of their central message or lesson.
Write information/explanatory texts in which students supply some facts about a topic and some sense of closure.
Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach.
Participate in shared research and writing projects
Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.
Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps. Limit to contexts where the object being measured is spanned by a whole number of length units with no gaps or overlaps.
Use fundamental principles and concepts of economics to understand economic activity in a market economy.
Describe economic wants they have experienced.
Distinguish between producers and consumers of goods and services.
Describe ways in which families consume goods and services.
Using examples, explain why people cannot have everything they want (scarcity) and describe how people respond (choice).
