Reading: We are reading and spelling so many words and working hard to hear all the sounds in a word! Vowel sounds can be tricky! We are working on hearing short and long vowel sounds in words as well. We continue to work on memorizing sight words and applying that knowledge to reading and writing. We began our non fiction unit by reading to learn about iguanas. We also have a stuffed animal “pet” iguana our class is taking care of.
Writing: We began non fiction or informational writing. We began making a book about iguanas. We made our cover with the title and the author, drew diagrams of an iguana and wrote a sentence about what parts an iguanas have. We will continue writing facts next week to complete our books!
Math: We continued our work with counting and skip counting. We solved a number story about having enough seats at a party. We worked on showing the number story using pictures, numbers and words as well as showing how we solved the problem.
Science and Social Studies: We learned a little more about Dr. King this week. We celebrated Beulah Ralph’s birthday and talked about how she helped kids in CPS during desegregation. We are taking care of Lizzy the iguana(she is non living but we are pretending she is living) based on what living things need.
