1st Grade Curriculum for Week 4, 8/12-8/16

Reading–We are starting a new author’s study of Eric Carle. While reading his books, we are working on identifying story elements and sequencing. Students will emulate his writing style when making their own books.

Grammar – Students will identify and use different types of nouns (common and proper).

Writing– We are working on the 3 parts of a narrative writing piece: beginning, middle, and end. Students will also revise and edit their writing once completed.

Prompt: Tell about what you do after school.

Math– A new chapter will begin. Chapter 2 involves subtraction concepts within 10. Here is a video from Khan Academy that reviews addition and introduces subtraction within 10: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/early-math/cc-early-math-add-sub-basics/cc-early-math-together-apart/v/addition-and-subtraction-within-10

Social Studies: First graders will continue to work on the Responsible Citizenship unit. This week, students will learn about how laws help communities, and how community leaders help people.
