Welcome to our home page. Check back here often to find out about things happening in our class and at our school!
It's hard to believe that May is here and there are just over 30 days left of school! Time goes by so fast! This month's Word of the Month is Sportsmanship. In math we are finishing up the units on teen numbers and counting on from any given number. Students should understand that a teen number is made up of one 10 and some more loose ones. Next we will be reviewing shapes and talking about measurement. There are fun math games coming home that will allow students to practice these concepts in a fun way. Our focus in reading and writing is to finish identifying story elements and retelling a story in sequential order. We are also practicing how to make connections with what we read ("This reminds me of something I've experienced, something I've seen, or something I've read.") In another week or so we will be introducing the students to the skill of doing research to learn about a topic. Students will work with a partner and do research to learn about an insect or animal. They will have to create a poster and teach the class what they've learned. In writing we will still focus on writing detailed sentences that help the reader visualize what the writer is trying to convey. Conventions such as starting sentences with a capital letter, spacing between words, spelling sight words correctly, and ending with appropriate punctuation will be expected. Our focus in science is learning how living things grow. We will be observing the life cycle of a butterfly, planting seeds, and learning about the water cycle.
