Weekly Update

Week 13 Update

Our Learning

LITERACY:  In Reading Workshop we will continue our unit on Reading Superpowers.  Students will revisit their “pointer power” and make sure that every word (even the longer ones) gets one tap!  Students will also recognize “snap words” in their text and use them to check their reading.  In Writing Workshop we will begin our unit on Labeling and Listing.  Students will practice recording observations like scientists (pictures and labels), capturing what they see exactly the way they find it.  *On Tuesday your child will bring home their writing pieces from our first Writing Workshop unit, along with their piece from conferences.*

MATH:  This week we will continue our unit on Geometry.  Students will describe, name, and sort 3-D shapes based on attributes.  We will also learn about what happens when the size and orientation of a shape is changed.  Students will continue to use positional language such as above, below, beside, in front of, next to, and behind.

SCIENCE:  We will continue to prepare for our first science kit and our informational writing unit by exploring “What do scientists do?”.  Students will discover how scientists observe and learn, practice their own observation skills, and begin to notice nonfiction text features.
