Here is what we will be working on in our classroom this week:
Reading/Science - Our theme is animal bodies and the students will hear the stories A Zebra's World and What Do You Do With a Tail Like This? Our high frequency words will be "you" and "what" and our new sound is /f/. We also will be working on identifying complete sentences. In class this week your child will be assigned an animal that they will be learning about for an animal report. We will complete all research for this project in school and at home you will need to fill out the report and make a diorama of the animal's habitat. All details for this project will be in the homework packet this week.
Math - We will continue working through our chapter on numbers to 100 this week. We will specifically work on counting numbers 30 - 100 and representing the numbers using base ten blocks.
Religion - We will talk about the second week of Advent and how Mary said yes to being the Mother of God.
Have a wonderful week!
