Hello Families!

Don’t Forget Swimming on Thursday, March 19th!

This week in Language Arts, we will be working on words that begin and end with the letter G.  We are continuing to put story events in order (beginning, middle, end – sequence).  We are working on using complete sentences in our writing, and making sure each sentence starts with a capital letter and ends with a period or question mark.

In Math, we are finishing our unit on adding groups up to 10.  We will begin our next two units on “teen numbers”, and be able to show a teen number is 10 plus another number. Ex. 15=10 +5.  We also have a special St.  Patrick’s Day graphing activity with a yummy snack!  We will be sending home an extra set of flash cards this week to continue practicing memorizing our addition facts with answers to 5.

In Science we will read about the life cycles of various animals (chickens, horses, frogs, butterflies).

Have a great week!
