Weekly Focus

Reading:

Describe characters, settings, and major events in a story, using key details.

Writing:

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

With guidance and support from adults, focus on a topic, respond to questions and suggestions from peers, and add details to strengthen writing as needed.

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:

Distinguish between producers and consumers of goods and services.

Describe ways in which families consume goods and services.

10-14-19

Reading:

Identify main topic and retell key details.

Writing:

Write narratives in which students recount two or more appropriately sequenced events, include some details regarding what happened, and provide some sense of closure.

With guidance and support from adults, focus on a topic, respond to questions and suggestions from peers, and add details to strengthen writing

Science:

Make observations at different times of year to relate the amount of daylight to the time of year.

Social Studies:

Demonstrate chronological thinking by distinguishing among past, present, and future and family or school events.
