We are finishing our first IB Unit of the year. Please comment on this page or send me an email of any action your child may have shown as a result of our study (ie. Conversations about community helpers, identifying symbols in the community, noticing the American or Georgia Flag, discussion about their emotions). These do not need to be big actions just things that you are hearing at home about what we are studying at school.

This week we are learning:

IB Unit- Who We Are: All About Me and My Community: REVIEW-What is our role in a community?

ELA:

  • We will review Community helpers, Teasley workers, our role in the class community. The class will also collaboratively create a community map.
  • Phonics: 3 letters can be used to make words: short vowel cvc words (ex. cub, rib, ham, rod).
  • Sight words: said, go, if, but

Writing:

  • Learning how to write: draw, label, touch and retell.
  • Students will write to tell about Fall Break and their community.

Math:

  • Number sense numbers 0-10
  • Identifying what number come next and before, using a 100 chart.
  • Count to 50
