We are reading "This is How We Go To School". It is a great book about how kids all over the world get to school. We will be comparing/contrasting how kids go to school around the world. We will be focusing on illustrations and how they support the text. We will also continue to work on making connections with stories and activating prior knowledge before reading.
We are focusing on letters Ss and Cc this week. These letters are purposefully taught together to help students understand the difference sounds.
Students will continue to build writing stamina during writer's workshop. Students will review and learn new routines during writing time.
We are learning numbers 6-8 this week. Students will continue to read and write numbers 1-8 while also playing math games with partners.
How do students around the world get to school?
