Week of March 19th-23rd
This week in Reading we will begin the story Max Takes the Train. The question we will focus on is: What are different ways of going places? This story is an animal fantasy and we will be focusing on the comprehension skill of realism and fantasy. Our phonics skill is /j/ spelled Jj and /w/ spelled Ww. Our high frequency words are: yellow, blue, and green.
This week in Math we will continue with Topic 8, Understanding Subtraction. In this topic, we will learn about stories about separating, take away and comparing. Additionally, we will learn about using the minus sign, finding differences and subtraction sentences. Please continue practicing counting to 100 by ones, fives, and tens.
Our classroom is in need of some glues sticks. It would be greatly appreciated if each student could bring in a four pack of glue sticks. Thank you in advance for your donation.
Our daily special schedule is: Monday, Day 2: Guidance, Tuesday, Day 3: Gym, Wednesday, Day 4: Music, Thursday, Day 5: Computers, and Friday, Day 6: Art. Please remember if we have a snow day that the next school day will be the next rotation day.
