Language Arts/Writing

Units: Launching, Nonfiction: All About Books, Poetry, and Personal Narrative, How To

In our "Launching" Unit, we will learn all about why writer's write and what good writers do.  We will create heart maps to inspire our own writing ideas, and explore a variety of mentor texts for ideas and to examine.

 Social Studies
- Starts MP 2

-In Math we are working on learning our Doubles and Near Doubles in a snap.  We are also talking about how you can add in any order. We are learning how various strategies can lead us to the same answer, and we are practicing how to talk about those strategies with each other.  

-Keep practicing basic addition and subtraction.
-Some strategies we have learned to help us add and subtract:
chips, ten-frame, draw a picture, number line, make a 10, doubles, near doubles

*Please continue to practice basic math facts at home!

**Encourage your children to use various strategies to help them solve problems (number bonds, ten frames, draw it out, number line, etc...)**                    

- We are wrapping up our Unit on Space in the coming week.  We learned all about the Sun, Moon, Constellations, and patterns we see in the sky.

Next Up- Physical Science: Light and Sound
We are stepping away from a traditional weekly spelling list and test again this year.  Instead, spelling will be embedded in our phonics program (FUNdations) and Writer's Workshop.  Spelling will be assessed formally during FUNdations unit tests, and informally through daily application in authentic writing.
