List 17

Your child should study their words at home every day to practice the skill we are focusing on for the week. They will also be tested on 2 “mystery words” that also follow the weekly skill.

Our next test will be on Friday, January 17th.

**Spelling Skill: fl, pl words**

# This Week’s Focus Jan 13-17th

**Reading**:

Use illustrations and details in a story to describe its characters, setting, or events.

Compare and contrast the adventures and experiences of characters in stories.

**Writing:**

Write informative/explanatory texts in which they name a topic, supply some facts about the topic, and provide some sense of closure.

**Math:**

Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

Solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract. Examples: If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)

Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 – 4 = 13 – 3 – 1 = 10 – 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 – 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).

**Science:**

Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate.

**Social Studies:**

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)
