This week we will read Mr. Peabody’s Apples and will study vocabulary and themes from the text. Students will discuss character traits, major events in the story and the author’s purpose or lesson.

VOCABULARY OF THE WEEK: usual, rumor, judge, reply

WRITER’S WORKSHOP
The students will continue to write narrative pieces focusing on stretching out unknown words, work spacing and punctuation. We will work on listening to a partner share and using the ABC chart and word wall for spelling.

MATH
This week, we will continue with unit 2. Students will use 10 frames and play two-fisted penny to identify facts with sums of 10. We will have an exploration day on Wednesday and will play subtraction BINGO, rock, paper, scissors and tally items in the classroom.

SCIENCE
We will continue to look closely at patterns of the sun (if we can get some sunshine).  We will also begin to discuss moon phases and changes of season.

SOCIAL STUDIES
We will discuss different types of families and the people who make them up. We will share what we like to do with our families and where our families live.
