Math – This week students will continue working in unit 2. Unit 2 focuses on learning patterns to help students memorize their addition and subtraction facts.  This week students will focus on learning their doubles facts, almost doubles, and the +9 rule. Students will take their first timed addition facts quiz on Thursday.

 

Language Arts – This week we will continue reading our first novel of the year, Zeely by Virginia Hamilton.  Our reading skills this week are retelling the most important events in a story, and identifying the author’s purpose.  In writing students will begin a second narrative piece.  Students will work to follow the story structure we’ve been studying with their second narratives of the year.  

 

Social StudiesThis week we will expand our studies of community as we begin looking at government.  Students will also discuss strategies for using self talk to regulate themselves when something in their surroundings upsets them.

 

Science – This week students will continue working in our first unit of the year – solids and liquids.  This week students will learn the names of describable properties of solids and begin differentiating them.
