Here is what we are studying this week:
Spelling: We will begin studying our words this week. I plan to send home words this Friday for students to study for next week.
This week we will be working on making connections within a text. The 3 types of text connections are: Text-to-self, text-to-text, and text-to-world.
Students will be working on vocabulary journals to go along with our read aloud of the week. This weeks book is Roxaboxen, by Barbara Cooney. There will be a vocabulary test on Friday.
Math this week will focus on addition and subtraction with some regrouping and borrowing. We did this last year, so this is a review for most of the students.
Last week our classes adopted the tree below. We will be observing the changes in this tree over the entire year. This week we are going to take a closer look at leaves and the different types of leaves.
