Math- We have now finished 3-D/2-D shapes. We will be working with numbers from 11-20 now. Students will need to know the number recognition, number word, and how to decompose and compose numbers between 11-19. This means how many tens and ones are in each number up to 30. We will also be working with 10's and 1's to figure out how many are in any given number up to 50.
Science- This unit is on movement. How we can move and how things around us move.
SS- We are learning about our family now and historically. Also it is Black History month and our class is focusing on Rosa Parks.
Writing- We have started a class report on spiders. Then students can pick an animal of their choosing. This includes making sure we use only capitals at the beginning of a sentence, periods at the end of a sentence and spacing between words.. Reports include how to use 4 square organizers for each section of the report (habitat,describing attributes,food, intersting facts), creating a diagram of the spider and labeling all parts, table of contents, glossary and helping to use technology to finish the report.
