Curriculum Highlights

It was so nice to catch up with all of you at conferences and share your child's progress.

Math - We are working on Unit 3 in Go Math! This unit teaches the students Basic facts and Relationships. The kids will be taking the test later this week. Our next unit focuses on Addition Strategies using two digit numbers. 

Reading – The unit being taught is Non-Fiction. Students are becoming experts on Non-Fiction books. They are reading a variety of texts and learning the components that differentiate Non-Fiction from Fiction.

Writing – The class is writing Non-Fiction Expert books. They are incorporating all the parts of a Non-Fiction book in their own books. The topics the kids have come up with are great!

Social Studies - The class has begun to learn about Landforms.

ScienceWe continue to study Pebbles, Sand, & Silt. The class has sorted and observed the properties of sand. Coming up, the kids will be exploring clay, studying the uses of rocks, and making sand sculptures.
