Happy Friday to all of us! Here are our plans for next week:
Monday: Field day- Please have your child dress appropriately for the weather and outdoor activities.
Reading and Writing:This week, we will continue to use nonfiction text features such as bold words, photos, glossaries, headings, captions, labels, indexes, table of contents etc. to look for information in texts. We are learning to read a text and identify the author’s main point. We have been reading many informational books and articles, and they are getting really good at highlighting key details (important information). I strongly encourage you to read informational books with your children, as you will be very impressed with their skills.
Math: We are continuing to add and subtract two digit numbers using different strategies such as breaking apart numbers, looking for patterns on the number grid, drawing base ten blocks, and adding with regrouping. We are learning how to use patterns to add and subtract ten mentally to two digit numbers, and can record missing numbers in a sequence.
Social Studies: We are learning about schools, transportation, clothing, jobs, and family life in the past and present. Students are becoming proficient in being able to compare and contrast events, information, and texts on a double bubble map. Also, we continue to learn about the days of the week, months of the year, and important dates on a calendar. Please take time at home to look at calendars and talk about their features.
Happy Mother’s Day to All! I hope your weekends are extra special 🙂
