In the classroom:
Math: We are working on addition strategies this week and subtraction strategies next week. Thus far we have learned multiple strategies to help us add within 20. These strategies are to build using OG blocks, draw a picture, use a number line, or count on. Next week we will be working on our subtraction strategies. These are building with OG blocks, count back, count up, number line, related facts, or fact families.
Reading: We are continuing with our unit on nonfiction texts and solving tricky words. We will continue this unit for the next few weeks before working on the report card standards. Some standards will be introduced during this unit but the main focus is allowing students to become familiar with nonfiction texts and learn how to better understand these types of stories.
Writing: We are continuing our writing on informational texts. This week we have been working on how to carve a pumpkin and how to trick-or-treat. Next week we will be working on an informational text about Thanksgiving. We will continue with how to writing as well as teaching the reader about a topic in an informational text. We are working on telling the story across our fingers to help us plan our stories and thinking about the reader when writing a story.
Phonics: We are working on beginning blends the next few weeks. The blends we will be working on are br, cr, dr, fr, tr, st, bl, pl, cl, fl, gl, sl.
Social Studies/ Science/ Health: We are learning about sound and light. Next week we will be starting our unit on Ben Franklin.
