This week in Reading and Writing Workshop…

We will complete our Chick Research Project.  We’ve collected our facts by reading from different sources of information such as books, websites and watching short videos.  Now we are ready to teach others about what we learned. We will write letters to the chicks, and go through the writing process to create a fictional story with a beginning, middle, and end.

 

This week in Math…

We will focus on counting collections of coins.  A collection of pennies is counted by 1’s. A collection of nickels is counted by 5’s and a collection of dimes is counted by 10’s.  We will also begin thinking about numbers up to 120 and find patterns on the hundreds chart. We will learn about place value by using concrete objects to represent numbers with three digits.

 

This week in Science…

We will relate our study of chicken coops to different animals and examine their habitats.  We will think about how animals depend on plants and other animals to live and get shelter. We will study habitats from all over the world.

 

This week in Social Studies…

We will continue to discuss ways to spend, save and donate money.  We will talk about the needs of families and the community.
