This week in Reading and Writing Workshop…
We will continue our learning about nonfiction text. We know that readers read to learn! Writers can also write to teach readers something they know a lot about! We will examine the features of nonfiction and create a list of ways readers use these features. We will discuss the purpose behind why readers read nonfiction…to LEARN! We will continue our learning, reading and writing. This week, our focus will be on Spiders!
This week in Math workshop…
We will also start learning about Subtraction and Doubles. We will explore what subtraction means by acting out subtraction stories and using manipulatives. Also in this unit, the students will begin thinking about how addition and subtraction are connected.
Next week (Monday and Tuesday) we are going to do a fun graphing activity. If a few families could donate a bag of candy (either one kind of candy or a bag with different kinds) that would be fantastic. We are going to do some real-life learning with candy! Thanks in advance! *we will not be eating the candy at school but I will send it home!
This week in Science…
We will be exploring magnets! We will learn all about how they attract and repel objects. We will have many hands-on opportunities to explore this fun unit!
This week in Social Studies…
We will learn communities and how people change and grow over time.
Our Life Skill of the week is Initiative! Initiative is the ability to do something without being asked just because it needs to be done.
