What are we learning?
Reading Workshop
We are continuing our Story Element unit.  Students are learning about problems and solutions, story sequences, and morals.

Writing Workshop
We are starting our Poetry Unit!  Students will learn how poets listen to poetry, read several poems, and begin writing their own poems. 

Word Study
This week, we will explore L blends (pl, sl, bl, fl, cl, gl).  We will also learn how to read and write these words that will be added to our Word Wall: good, want, how. Have your child sing you the songs for these words.

Students are practicing counting my 5’s, learning to use a number grid, and learning how to use the “Count On” strategy to solve addition problems. 

Social Studies
This week we are continuing to learn about the United States presidents. 

*Send in a healthy peanut-free snack and water bottle (with a pull up spout) every day.

* Sign your child’s weekly planner every night!
* Library book due every Friday!
