Reading: We are reading books from our reading series. Our word skills this week are long i digraphs (-ie, -igh). We are using the 5 Whs (question words): who, what, where, when, why, and how; beginning, middle, and end of the stories we read, and the main idea. We are working on capitalization and punctuation in writing, as well as sharing our writing with others.
Math: We are working on capacity and weight using nonstandard units of measurement.
Science: We are investigating water. Students need to know that liquids mix or separate from water as well as some solids dissolve or not dissolve in water. The temperature of the water affects how fast a solid will dissolve.
Social Studies: We are learning about consumers and producers. A consumer buys goods and services; a producer makes or sells goods and services. People save their money to spend later.
Notes: With the warmer weather come more comfortable clothes. Please remember the dress code when dressing in shorts and sandals. Flip flops and sandals with no back straps are not allowed at school. We have PE on Thursdays. Also, tank tops and shorts above the hands are discouraged. Students should probably bring a light jacket, as the air conditioner will be on in the building. Thank you for your understanding.
