Social Sciences: We will finish up our unit on community and school helpers. We will then begin our unit on American Symbols and Citizenship.
Reading: We will continue reading groups this week. We will take a practice comprehension test on THURSDAY. Students will read a story in class and we will discuss it. The comprehension test will be based on the pages the children read on Wednesday in reading groups. They should read the story (pages will be on a sticky note on the front of the book) and then ask an adult to ask them questions about what they read. Books should be returned to school on Friday. Please do not take the sticky note off the book. We use the same sticky note all week to help save resources.
Spelling: We will have a spelling test every Friday. Students will write these words when I call them out. This week five bonus words will be added to the list. Students should learn the 10 spelling words first. For a challenge, they can also learn the five bonus words. All students will take the bonus portion of the test. For each bonus word spelled correctly, the student will get 1 extra point on the test. There is no penalty for spelling a bonus word incorrectly.
man, ran, sun, bus, hot, net, sit, cub, a, the
Bonus Words: brown, blue, black, pink, orange

Handwriting: We will continue learning how to form the letters. This week we will learn G, H, I, J.
