What Are We Learning This Week?:

Letter Team:  TCH (sounds like CH, like in BATCH, FETCH, ITCH).


Reading: This week, we will welcome guest readers and read lots of Dr. Seuss books.


Writing: This week, we will be learning how to write an opinion piece. We will discuss that writing an opinion is telling "What and Why". For example, "What is your favorite season and why? What is your favorite animal and why?" and so on. 


Math: This week, I will continue to assess students on all the math concepts we have learned so far, including numbers, shapes, measurement, fluency facts through 5, addition and subtraction, decomposing and composing numbers, and base ten place value. We will review everything we have learned in math so far this year and play lots of fun math games!


Leadership: We will continue to ROAR and discuss what it means to have a growth mindset!
