In writing we are going to be working on narrative pieces. The kids are going to take small moments from their lives and tell us that story through their writing. We are going to focus on adding good details to bring their stories alive for the readers, creating great beginnings and endings for their stories, and they are going to assess their own writing to come up with their own goals for their growth as writers. I am so excited to see how far their writing grows after this quarter.
Below are the skills the kids will be working on in math during this first unit.
- Identify the unknown in an addition or subtraction word problem
- Write an addition and subtraction equation with a symbol for the unknown
- Know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers
- Know mental strategies for addition and subtraction
Spelling-With changes in curriculum, the kids will not get a weekly class spelling list. We will be doing phonics lessons and sight words at each individual child's level. There will not be a weekly spelling test.
