This week, we are:

Math: using addition and subtraction strategies to solve one step and two step word problems within 20. Students must use pictures, numbers, and words to answer word problems. We will work on this standard for the next few weeks and assess along the way. Please also work on mastering addition and subtraction facts 1-20 by the end of this quarter!

Writing: writing an introduction, subtopics with facts, and conclusion with winter informational writing.

Reading: determining the author’s point and reasons in informational texts. Students will be assessed on their independent reading levels the next two weeks.

Language Arts: decoding and spelling vowel dipthongs with short oo sounds- brook, bush, push, pull, full, look, bully, bookshop, seagull, away. We will also learn about reflexive pronouns.
