Reading Workshop

Learning Objective: Students will be able to actively engage in group reading activities with purpose and understanding. They will be able to use reading strategies to read texts. 



This week in our reader’s workshop, we were reminded when we look at patterns, it’s important to see what is the same and what is different because patterns help us read difficult books. We also learned when a pattern changes in a book, we need to use all of our powers to read that page.

Writing Workshop

Learning Objective: Students will be able to pick one topic they want to teach others about; create a rough draft by drawing pictures of their steps; and create a rough draft by writing sentences 



This week in our writer’s workshop, we picked a topic we are experts in to write a book about. We outlined our How To books by drawing and writing a rough draft. We then made our book covers including a title and a correlating picture.


Learning Objective: Students will be able to compare using more than and the same as; compare using fewer than and the same as; and relate more and less to length.


This week we wrapped up Topic E: Are There Enough? and began Topic F: Comparison of Sets Within 10.

Social Studies / Science

Learning Objective: Students will be able to explain that our neighborhood is made up of different kinds of families and explain different jobs in a community and tell why they are important.



We built our own community project in which each student decorated a building in our community. We talked about the different kinds of helpers that you can find in a community. Just like there are many different kinds of people in a neighborhood, there are also many different kinds of jobs that people do. We explored what community helpers do and why.


Please continue to practice literacy skills by using Lexia Core5 and Raz Kids at home.
