This week, we begin our new unit on frogs! This unit will help us explore nonfiction books, learn new vocabulary, and discuss similarities and differences between characters in fiction books.
Also this week, we will be discussing Habit #5 - Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood, and talking about the Stretchy Snake reading strategy (say all the sounds in the word and blend them back together). In math, we will be talking about number models involving money (ex: I bought a sucker for 3 cents and a gumball for 2 cents. I spent 5 cents. 3+2=5) and exploring patterns - both with shapes/colors and with numbers.
Please watch your student's planner for updated fluency and sight word scores. We will be retesting these items in the next two weeks. I will also be sending home book orders. If you would like to order books, they are due November 19th.
I hope your families had a great weekend!
