Quarter 1, Week 9

What Are We Learning This Week?
Reading:    We will continue to focus on using “context clues,” one of our many strategies, to determine the meaning of an unknown word or phrase in a text. We will learn about collective nouns. We will also explain how specific images (ex: a diagram showing how a machine works) contribute to and clarify a text.

Vocabulary:  We will read Edward and the Pirates.  Our vocabulary words this week are comforting, pleaded, firmly, inscription, and lance.

Writing:     We will continue to work on “juicing up” our stories by adding interesting words and details.  With guidance from the teacher, we will also continue to work on editing.

Math:   We will continue working on addition and subtraction up to 20 using mental strategies. We will also use addition and subtraction to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing.

Science/Social Studies:   We will continue to discuss the roles and responsibilities of citizens and “community helpers.”  We will also continue to discuss how the government plays a role in our community.

We will be celebrating our writing on Friday. Could you please send in juice and cookies for our class of 21! Thank you!!!!
