IB Unit- How We Organize Ourselves: Rocks and Soil


  • We will be exploring and classifying earth materials: rocks, soil, air, water using the senses. We will explore a variety of books and videos to gain more information. Some other books that we will read are: The Lorax and The Cat in the Hat
  • Discovery Center: Scientist studying and comparing a variety of rocks
  • Phonics: Introduce– The FLOSS rule (When one syllable ends with an f, l, s, z and has a short vowel sound. It is usually spelled with an ff, ll, ss, or zz)   ie jazz, less, cliff
  • Sight words: she, sit, his, say, then, said. If your child already recognizes these sight words ask them to practice writing them in sentences using their phonetic spelling, for ex: We r (are) on the bot (boat).


  • Drawing, labeling, stretching out words to be able to write the beginning, ending, and middle sounds. Students should be correctly spelling sight words.
  • Every Monday we do a narrative write about our weekend. Informational and narrative writing about earth’s materials- soil, air, land, water and taking care of our resoources.


  • Decomposing within 5 (students that mastered this will work within 10) Focus on subtraction
  • Word problem Friday: learning strategies to solve word problems that are read by the teacher.
