Phonics/ Grammar- We started a new chart- Chart 9. Please review these phonics patterns this week: ing – pointing, kn -knot, gn- gnat. Please look for them in your reading homework. In grammar we are practicing adding a prepositional phrase to our sentences, so instead of writing: The fluffy dog runs. Write: The fluffy dog runs quickly through the grass. Tell when or where.

 

Math–Chapter 3- We are continuing Addition Strategies: Add in any order, Count On, Add Doubles, Doubles plus or minus 1

 

Social Studies/Science- Students are learning how to categorize and classify animals by looking at their external parts. We are also learning to classify vertebrates-mammals, fish, birds, amphibians and reptiles.
