Cycle 2: Readers and Writers Make Decisions

Cycle 3: Feelings and Emotions

Cycle 4: Characters Make Decisions

Cycle 5: Accepting Differences

Writing Workshop: 
We will be learning about who writes and why do people write.  We will also brainstorm topics that they can write about. The students learned how to make a mini-book last week.  We wrote and illustrated a mini-book titled, " I like" and we will be starting another book titled, "I don't like."  Very simple format, but lots of fun to write, illustrate, and share!    

Language Skills/Phonics
  • We will be learning about the different types of sentences
  • We will practice writing a good sentence with a subject and a predicate
  • We will also focus on capitalization 
  • Short vowels and CVC words


Unit 1: Sums and Differences to 10


The students will be able to use a CROME BOOK in school.  Last week, they created a picture sign in that was written on an index card and kept in school in a private area and only for their use.  We will be using math programs and RAZ KIDS on the computer along with doing research and various projects throughout the year.
