This Weeks' Focus

Language Arts

This week we will conclude our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom unit. We will incorporate some science into this unit with utilizing all of our senses to learn about coconuts. We will continue our study of bears and their habits, habitats, etc. We are also practicing working in small groups for reading rotations. It will take a little while to learn the system but your children are doing well so far. We will read Plaidypus Lost for our Scott Foresman unit.
