In our current math unit we are expanding our
knowledge of addition and subtraction by learning new strategies to add numbers
up to 15 and subtract numbers from 15. We are also learning about place value
and counting mixed coins.
In our current science unit we are learning
about plants. Some of the things we will learn about plants include what they need to grow and survive, plant parts and their functions and their life cycle.
Students have been reassessed and moved to groups that meet their specific
needs. Please remember when reading bags come home to have your child read the
book to you and practice their sight words. Students can list the book on their
daily reading homework and their Book-It list! Don't forget to return the
reading bag the next day. Happy reading!
In addition to our daily reading group, we are also learning to identify the main idea in fiction stories and read and spell words with long vowel sounds.
P - Positive Attitude
R - Responsible
I - Integrity
D - Do the Right Thing
E - Engaged
You can practice sight words at home by printing the flashcards below and reading them with your child.
