BRRR! I hope that everyone is staying warm!
This week and next will be short weeks for us. We will have teacher staff development on Friday and next Monday we will be out for Martin L. King Day. I hope that you enjoy your extra long weekend!
This week we will read "The Class Pet." It is a story that tells about how real mice grow and change. Our skills for the week are to identify fact and opinion; use adjectives that describe; blend and read words that have ending -es; and work on r-controlled vowels (we call these bossy r words such as or, store, corn, etc.); and practice daily Saxon Phonics.
In Math we will continue number patterns to 120. We will skip count and identify the patterns that we observe.
In Science we will explore soil and its properties.
In Social Studies we will continue our unit on good citizens. We will discuss facts about Benjamin Franklin and Martin L. King Jr. We will also learn about the meaning of USA anthems and mottoes.
