Here’s a peek at next week:
Spelling words: much, child, each, there, them, when, where, bath, wish, she

Phonics-  Diagraphs (ch, th, sh, wh, ph)

Reading: Daily 5 implementation with emphasis on asking and answering questions about details in texts. What was the main idea? How can I retell the story?(5 finger retell, details in sequence, conclusion) Comprehension strategy is making mental pictures. 

L.Arts: Sentence correction: focus(capitalization, punctuation, plural/possessive noun, exclamation) 

Writing Workshop: Working on crafting our teaching booklets. What am I an expert at? When I write I keep the reader in mind. We are learning that we teach with our pictures as well. 

Math: Introduce the ideas of commutative property, zero property of addition, counting on and adding doubles. 
Review:Numeration:Place Value(Patterns within 100) Making ten bundles,+1 and -1, +10 and -10, what comes before and after a certain number? We will continue to show how to make a number with base ten blocks, distinguish numbers as tens and ones and represent numbers with tallies.  We will also continue to explore the importance of organizing our data in a chart/graph that can be easily read by others. 

Social Studies: Magnets (What are they? How do they work? What will stick to them?)

1.Study spelling words! 
2. READ! :)

Students enjoyed the opportunity to construct boats for Christopher Columbus but they really enjoyed testing them in ocean "tub of water" and wind "fan". We will be identifying strategies that helped our boat float, sail and hold the most "cargo". Thank you to ALL that helped make this challenge possible for us!! :)

Looking forward to meeting for conferences over the next month! :)
