Reading – We are learning about Nonfiction texts and this month we are reading many books by Gail Gibbons. Can your child find the main idea and facts in a nonfiction text?
Grammar – We are learning about plural nouns. Have your child identify plural nouns as they are reading a book. Example: The girl caught lots of flies. The boy played with many toys.
Writing – Students will continue to practice Informative Writing. Informative writing is when you want to teach someone facts about a topic. Sing the song.
Informative Writing has a title,
A topic sentence and lots of facts.
Don’t forget the conclusion,
Informative writing is full of facts.
Use some of the transitions before writing facts on a topic – Did you know, One fact is, According to the article/video, Surprisingly…
Math – We are starting a new chapter. Chapter 4 is about subtraction strategies. One strategy is counting backwards to find the answer. Use a number line to help. Practice counting backwards and forwards. A reminder that it does not always start at one.
Social Studies/Science – Students will be introduced and learn about spiders. Ask them to tell you four facts about spiders.
