Homework- a new type of reading log is coming home this week. This reading log is designed to give more writing practice. 1 sentence is required for every 20 minutes of reading. The goal is still 8 stars (20 min / 4 nights).
Not much is changing this week. We are continuing to dive deeper into the concepts we are learning.
Super Power of the week- Virtue of Loyalty.
Math- This week we are continuing to explore addition and subtractions problems and working to develop the concept that " = " means the value on each side is equal. This is a challenging concept to develop and is well worth the time. I have read and done several research projects on this concept and our kids will have better number sense after this unit.
Z00 phonics- We are taking a break from whole group zoo phonics. I will be working in small groups to better meet the phonics needs of our class. Phonics rules will very per group.
Social Studies- For the next 3 week we will be working with Need vs. Wants. This will lead into our study of economics. At the end of our unit we will have a lemonade stand to raise money for our fire department, one of our community helpers.
Have a great week,
