This week we will read "Ruby In Her Own Time." It is a fictional story about a growing duck family. The author wrote this story to teach you that everyone or everything grows and develops in its own time. Our reading skills are compare and contrast; blend and read consonant digraphs ng, nk; identify verbs that add -s; abc order; use glossary skills; and Saxon Phonics.
In Math we will learn relating addition and subtraction to make fact families; and identify the missing addend in number facts. Example: Fact Family 3+4=7
Example: Missing Addends 8+___=15
In Science we will investigate soil, rocks, and water.
In Social Studies we will celebrate "Who We Are" and learn more about anthems, holidays, and traditions.

Our Little Geologists are
Investigating and Exploring Rocks!
Did you know that a "diamond" is the hardest kind of rock?
Did you know that a "mountain" is the biggest rock?
Did you know that a "pebble" is the smallest rock?
It takes thousands of years for a rock to form.
Rocks comes from minerals and there are lots of everyday things that we use that have minerals in them. Ask your child! :)
