This week we will read Scarecrow and will study vocabulary and themes from the text. Students will discuss character traits, major events in the story and the author’s purpose or lesson.


The students will continue to write daily.  We will begin a brief “author’s chair share” as time allows in which students will read their writing to the group voluntarily. Students enjoy acting out the stories of their peers.


This week, we will continue with unit 2. Students will use 10 frames and play two-fisted penny to identify facts with sums of 10. We will learn about change to more number stories and labeling counts using unit boxes.


We will look closely at patterns in the sky, specifically the movement of the sun. We will explore what the word “orbit” means.


This week we will discuss family needs and wants and how this varies from family to family with some things in common.
