April is here and hopefully it will feel like spring soon. This cold, wet weather is not the best condition for 6 and 7 year olds. Parents, I realize baseball and softball season is in full swing, but be aware of your child continuing his/her reading each day. We continue to have lots to do and reading each day at home help push the students closer and closer to their reading goal.
Word Work/Reading: Students will continue to read and use contractions in their writing and reading. Students will also begin this week to read for comprehension and record their proof from the text or passage read.
There are no new spelling words this week.
Writing: Students will analyze and write facts learned about our Texas State Symbols.
Social Studies: Research, read and discuss facts about the great state of Texas. Use these facts in our writing and use map skills to find important places in Texas and around.
Math: Students will continue to build greater numbers with 10’s and 1’s and begin combining these. As always, problem solving with addition and subtraction continues.
