    ELA – We worked on learning facts from our nonfiction book and fiction books about bats. We also compared facts. We will finish our nonfiction reading unit after break.

    Writing – We worked on creating our own All About book after picking our own topic. Next week we will move into more of an informational book format. We will move into creating an informational book about an animal and researching.

    Math – We are working on place value. We are comparing numbers and working on comparing story problems. We will finish our place value unit after break.

    Social Studies – We started learning about maps and globes. We worked on the differences and directional words. We will go into reading a map, creating a map, and being landforms after break.


    Your child should be reading each night for 10-15 minutes.  Please have your child read their Letterland homework page every night. This helps them remember the special sounds we are learning.
