*Math: Students will begin Unit 2 which is about comparing numbers, alike and different, sorting and grouping based on attributes of numbers. I will be sending home unit 1 for you to review tomorrow.
*Science: 5 Senses Unit Continue…this week we will continue finishing up the unit on the 5 senses!
*Writer’s Workshop- This week we will continue working on our goal of “labeling” parts of our very detailed pictures! We will use our new tool that was introduced last week called the “pencil”! We will also work on showing and “retelling” our stories! This is a HUGE skill that should be worked on whenever reading or writing stories! This is something you could help your child do at home each night as you read for pleasure. Ask your child to “retell” the story aloud. This helps with comprehension.
*Please make sure to check your child’s “grip” at all times as they are writing at home. Your child should be gripping with three fingers in a tripod grip and not with a whole hand, or any form of a grasped hand.
*Language Arts– Week 5 Transportation is our theme! We will be talking about what vehicles we use to transport us from here to there, how we get to school and home, what the different vehicles are used for and comparing our narrative story to the informational one! We will also continue to work on the CCSS: environmental sounds, beginning and ending sounds, words in a sentence, hearing rhymes.
-Trade Books: “Transportation in my Neighborhood” by Shelly Lyons and “Planes, Trucks, Trains”
*Spelling– can, see
This week we will be doing a fun math assignment for homework! You have until Monday to turn it in, however you may feel free to turn it in early!
We will be making a “number sense” quilt! Your child will be responsible for only 1 square of the quilt! So, if they have the number 5 they will place the number 5 somewhere in the upper left corner and then glue FIVE pictures of anything they want to on the number 5 page! We have 25 students in the class, so when we are all done we will have 25 squares with different amounts on each square. Good luck and have fun! Your child may draw or find pictures in a magazine or download pictures from the internet. In addition, your child may want to use stickers! Make it as cool as your want but very clear in the background so that we can tell what the objects are. THANK YOU in advance for your support as always.
Have a wonderful week! If there is anything I forgot I’ll be sure to update it as soon as possible.
