Reading: The circle and square groups are going to work on the sight words “he” and “for” this week. These groups will also be working on the short “i” sound in words. The triangle and hexagon groups are both working on the long vowel sounds and the silent “e” rule. The triangle group will learn about the “-ed” ending and the three sounds it makes, i.e., “t”, “d”, and “-ed” sounds. The hexagon group is also learning about contractions.
Math: This week, the students will learn about a scale and how to “balance” it. We will also learn how to make simple addition sentences from dominoes.
Religion: In religion, the students will learn about how we can “show love” to others like Jesus showed love to us.
Science: Last week, we started a unit on clouds. This week, we will read the books Little Cloud and It Looked Like Spilt Milk and imagine the clouds as different objects, shapes, or things. The students will then choose an object, shape, or thing and create their own clouds out of cotton balls. Be looking for these creations hanging in the hallway!
Writing: In writing, I will read the book Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Then, the students will choose and write about a type of food or drink that will fall from the sky. We will be turning our writing into another class book!
