Fundations: We will continue to review the previously covered topics and wrap up our unit on multi-syllabic words. We will then begin our unit on adding suffixes (-s, -ing, -ed) to multi-syllabic words. Please remember to study the spelling patterns and trick words being sent home with your child.
ELA: This month we will continue to work on our non-fiction unit. We studied the features and components that make up this genre. Students have explored a variety of non-fiction texts to identify these features in their own reading. We will also continue to explore animal habitats, where students will be able to listen to non-fiction texts and research an animal of their choice.
Math: We will begin our unit on 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes, and explore fractions within those shapes.
Science: We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our hermit crabs! The children will learn how to set up the creature’s habitat, and how to provide for its needs. The children will participate in a variety of inquiry-based lessons relating to the needs and care of the hermit crab.
Social Studies: During this month, we will continue to incorporate what we are working on during our ELA block. Students have been learning about the Arctic, Antarctic, rainforest, and ocean regions. We will continue to explore the animals in each region along with the characteristics of these locations.
