ELA: In Fundations, we continue to review the concepts taught up to this point in the year. We will be working with closed and open syllable words, as well as words with up to five sounds. We also started to introduce vowel teams to aid the students in decoding. You can refer to the new unit packet for further explanation. Please remember to complete the assigned daily homework, as well as practice the trick words from all of the previous units. During our ELA curriculum, we will be learning about biographies and studying famous Americans who have influenced our history.
Math: We are wrapping up our measurement unit using both the New York State Common Core Math Modules and My Math program. We will now begin our unit on graphing. We continue to focus on utilizing math vocabulary during our lessons. This can be reinforced with your child using the vocabulary cards sent home in each unit.
Social Studies: This month we will begin to talk about our community and the goods and services that are provided by our community members.
Science: We will begin our third unit in science. The children will learn about states of matter and distinguish between solids, liquids and gases.
Please remember that each weekend your child is responsible for15 minutes on Dreambox AND 15 minutes of Raz-Kids or Lexia in addition to their daily reading log. Thank you.
