This week we read "Life in the Forest." It is an expository text that tells facts about real animals and places. We always discuss the type of genre the story is. Students have to identify the type of genre on the weekly reading comprehension test. Our reading skills are read long u-e words; inflectional ending -ed; recognize the author's purpose for writing a story; identify singular and plural nouns; daily Saxon phonics practice.
In Math we will use manipulatives to add and subtract numbers up to 20. We will show our work by drawing out the problem.
In Science we will identify objects in the sky. We will learn facts about the sun, moon, and stars.
In Social Studies we will continue to celebrate holidays, traditions, and customs.

We had a "mock" election! We compared two characters who both wanted to be president. We read "Duck for President" then we watched the video "Grace for President." We discussed the qualities that each character had. First we had to register to vote, then one at a time we privately bubbled in our presidential choice and placed our vote in the ballot box. The next day we counted all the votes and our winner was "GRACE!" 15-4 We talked about "majority wins!"
We learned why the Pilgrims came to America. We read about some of the traditions the Pilgrims and Indians first started. Then we then made turkeys.
We read the book "My Most Thankful Thing" and wrote about our most thankful thing...
