This week we will read Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon. We will identify story elements such as characters, setting, character development and author’s purpose. We will use the book to make predictions and inferences. Students will be assessed on their understanding of these concepts using a 3 prompt open response assessment at the end of the week. This quarter our books of the week will focus on the growth mind set and perseverance.

We will continue working on unit 2 in writing. This unit continues to focus on narrative writing with an emphasis on the writing process. Last week we planned our writing and this week we will add details to the beginning, middle and end. Students will use this process to write at least three stories before the unit’s end.


This week, we will continue to work on number stories. Students will use the number line to practice adding and subtracting and skip counting. We will play Roll and Total, Domino Top-It and High Roller.


We will begin our next unit on Sound and Light.  Students will begin by identifying sources of sound and light.


We will read our first edition of Time Magazine and learn about Veterans Day. We will start to discuss family traditions.
