Action 100--please be reading at least 30 minutes a night with your child at home.  Remember to mark down the steps on their reading log.
 

Math-
We are working on numbers (and their uses), addition, and subtraction.  We will be taking weekly fact tests, so please practice basic facts with your child at home.  I have added a link to a great web site for your child to work on math.  It is fun and educational!!

Reading-
We are reading stories out of our reading series and discussing "character traits", sumarizing, and how illustrations/pictures can help make a story more interesting.   We will have new vocabulary words to learn each week.  

Grammar (Language Arts)--
This will be covered by Mrs. Keith on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday each week.


Social Studies-
We are learning about "Communities". The students will discover the similarities and differences of communities around our country, and our world.  We will also have "mini-units" throughout the school year covering different countries from around the world.


Spelling-
Spelling lists will be sent home with your child on Mondays.  The words will be used for 2 weeks.  The first week we study them for spelling and the second week we use them in writing.


Science--
This will be covered by Mrs. Janssen on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday each week.
