We will be reading realistic fiction this week. Our target skill will be sequence of events and discussing what a narrator is. Our essential question for this week is: How is music part of your everyday life?
Grammar/Writing: In grammar, we will work on locating statements. We will look for complete sentences that have a subject (who or what) and a predicate (did what). We will introduce thank you notes for writing. We will discuss the parts to a thank you note. We will write a class thank you note. The students will be working on their own thank you later in the week.
Religion: We will discuss how God speaks to us in silence. We will discuss many ways we communicate without using words. We will also listen to the story of Elijah. We will talk about when we are quiet we can hear God speak to us.
Math: We will continue to learn subtraction concepts this week. We will find all the ways to subtract from 9 and 10. We will introduce related facts this week. The students will learn that the same 3 numbers are used in the subtraction number sentence and the addition number sentence.

Social Studies: On Monday, we will listen to a story about Christopher Columbus and do a project. Look for them in the hallway!
Spelling: short o words and the high frequency words
Please take some time to work on spelling the words to know! We have been using body spelling at school. Try other multi-sensory ways to help ( write them on sandpaper, use shaving cream, or sand)
We will have the spelling test on Thursday!
