Reading:  Our class has worked very hard in our fiction unit: retelling stories, determining the central message, describing characters and setting, and asking and answering questions. We are now focusing on social and emotional learning. 

Writing: Students are working on publishing their small moment stories. Our  class can't wait to have a room full of authors. We plan on celebrating each other's successes! 

Phonics: Students have been studying the long i sound. We are now moving on to the long o sound such as: bone, home, and cone. 

Math: Students have been persevering in Module 2 of Eureka as we learn new ways to break apart numbers to make them easier to add. This week we learned "ten is our friend!" Take a peek on SeeSaw to learn about two different strategies to add numbers. We will take our Mid-Module Assessment at the end of this week, so make sure to keep practicing at home! 

Social Studies: We have  been discussing rules and laws. We have brainstormed some examples of rules and laws in our community.
