What We Are Learning: March 2021
Reading: Readers are finishing our study of characters. We are practicing supporting our ideas about characters with evidence from the text. We will also start a new unit on reading non-fiction!
Writing: Authors are writing about our reading! Students will learn to write organized paragraphs containing 5 sentences. We will write about the books we are reading as a class.
Math: Mathematicians are using place value to add and subtract numbers through one thousand. They are solving comparison story problems and one-step
addition and subtraction story problems with numbers within 200.
Science: Scientists are researching and experimenting to answer the questions: How and why do seeds travel? What is the life cycle of a plant?
Social Studies: Historians are learning how NYC changed over time with the arrival of immigrants. We are exploring how immigrant communities have shaped NYC neighborhoods.
- Check your child’s School Work Spot. Make sure they have: their whiteboard, a whiteboard marker, pencils, Fundations Journal, and device charger every day.
- Continue practicing math facts with your child. Challenge them to add and subtract any two numbers between 1 and 20 mentally.
- Reading is thinking! Ask questions after your child finishes reading such as:
- What were the important parts?
- How would you describe the main character?
