Next Week’s Curriculum
Next week in reading we will begin a new theme: Look at my Garden Grow! We will be learning about how plants grow and
what they need to survive. Our phonics focus will be on the ‘y’ making the ‘i’ or ‘e’ sound when it’s found at the end of a word.
As we read, our comprehension focus will be on drawing conclusions and confirming our predictions. We call this ‘inferring.’
In writing, we will begin a new unit on nonfiction writing. We will be gathering facts about school and interviewing people
and writing facts we learned about them. In math, we will begin our chapter on length using nonstandard and standard units.
For science, we will be learning about the different parts of a plant and their function.
