subjects THIS WEEK'S LESSONS: Sept. 28 - Oct. 2

  Here's what we'll be learning about this week:                                                      

Reading: This week we will learn the letter sounds of Mm and Ss.  We will identify words that begin with the Mm and Ss sounds. We will introduce our first High Frequency word:  "A."  We will read and write using the word "a."  Of course, we'll continue reviewing rhyme and syllables.  

 Handwriting Without Tears We will begin learning how to print the letter E.

Writing: We will draw and write about animals and color words this week.

 Math: We will beginTopic 2 this week, which involves counting and identifying the numbers 0-10.

Science:   We will begin our first science unit this week.  During October and November we will be learning about trees:  What does a tree look like?  What are the parts of a tree?  Is a tree living?  How does a tree grow?  How are trees used?  How do trees change in each season?  What are some different types of trees?  We will be observing trees on the school grounds to help us answer these questions and learn even more about trees.

Social Studies: We'll take a break from Social Studies this week to focus on our Science unit.
