# Week of December 1st

Welcome back!

WRITING: We will be writing a sentence using nouns and verbs. We will use most of the sight words we have learned to connect with foods from the story. Our sentence stem is: I go to the farm to see Annie____.

MATH-We will continue working up and down the number line with >  <  a given number. We will also roll and record using dice. We will graph our numbers.

We will also work with Creating and Extending a Pattern.

Home activity-Practice with >  <  a given number.  You don’t need any paper or pencil.  Ask, “What is a number > than 11?”  “A number 3 more than 16?”

Also, do some Interrupted Counting/Alphabet  “Give me the next 3 letters after L?”   “Next 3 numbers after 42?”

SOCIAL STUDIES-We will finish up Goods and Services,  Needs and Wants.  I will be assessing them next week on these concepts. We will also connect these ideas of how food goes from the farm to our table.
