Writing: This month we will be introducing expository writing to the students. We will also be writing an informational writing piece where students will have to do research.
Math: In math this month we will begin focusing on double digit addition and subtraction. We will be practicing how to add and subtract large numbers with base 10 blocks and also on paper.
Reading: We will continue working in our small reading groups during Daily 5. We are beginning to see a lot of progress with the first graders and their reading. This month is also reading month! We will be doing fun activities every week if students meet their reading goal!
