This includes Phonics, Spelling, Reading, Grammar and Writing.
We will continue to practice short and long vowel sounds and building our vocabulary. We will learn about nouns, verbs, adjectives, the different kinds of sentences, and practice writing sentences correctly. We will discuss fiction and nonfiction text. We will share many. many stories together and students will be writing their own original stories.
Current news topics will be discussed on a daily basis with Scholastic Weekly Reader. Students will learn Map Skills of location, direction and land formation. We will study the U.S.A within the North America continent. Community services and careers will be presented throughout the school year. Students will learn that they are members of many different communities.
Topics will vary throughout the school year. Hands on Projects and experimentation will lead to opening of inquisitive minds. Ocean life, animals of hibernation and extinction will be studied. Studying friction, electricity, sound, plant life, types of rocks, seasons, weather and climate will assist students with understanding their environment and the world in which they live.
