Math: We will be starting unit 5 in math. So far in this year we have worked extensively with numbers 0-10. In section 5, they will begin to build an understanding of place value by exploring the numbers 11-19. Below are some home links you can use to reinforce lessons from school!
Reading: We will be continuing to work on a unit called , the unit fosters children’s love of play as they learn “super power” strategies that help them search for meaning, use picture clues, work on fluency, and communicate meaning.
Writing: Students have been working on writing pattern books in December! We will continue to write how to books. This unit will teach students that they can teach others how to do things. They will determine the difference between narrative and information texts. Students will choose activities they know how to do to write many how-to books. They will collaborate with partners in revising their work.
Science and social studies: We will be finishing up our hibernation and migration unit. We will start a new unit on construction. The Construction unit invites children to make connections in physical science, engineering and technology through the building of structures, measurement and comparison, and experimentation with materials. It engages children in a construction process that involves envisioning (and being inspired), researching, planning, executing, and revising. This process can support the construction of physical structures as well as the building of ideas and works of art.
