We had a great first week of school! The students did well with helping to come up with expectations in the classroom and the hallway. Here are a few pictures from the first day:
This week we will be starting our first Word Study (similar to Spelling from last year). We will be working on compound words this week. In reading, we are going through our first 30 days of the curriculum. The students will spend time on what it means to be a good listener, asking questions while reading and learning what a book talk is. In writing, the students will get their writing folders organized and practice picking a topic to write about.
Last week in math, we started off with reviewing place value. We will continue that this week as well as talk about different methods for addition.
In social studies, we will continue to learn about "Where In the World is Our Community". Last week, the students learned about the equator, prime meridian, and hemispheres. We will learn about the oceans and continents. We will practice identifying countries on a map of North America as well.
Hope everyone has a great week!
