Mathematics: We will wrap up unit 3 this week with greater than, less than and equal to. Our test will be Friday!

Reading: We will be reading the story Bear Snores On and focusing on our reading skills of predicting, retelling, schema, and forming our own opinions of the story. 

Writing: Beginning our persuasive writing unit, students will get to write about something they want or want to do. I am interested to see how persuasive these students really are! 

Phonics: We will focus on vowel teams and the sounds they make as well as starting blends this week. Our blends we will be going over are pl, fl, and cl. We will also keep going over the digraphs NK and NG that go along with the welded sounds -ank, -onk, -ink, -unk, -ang, -ing, -ong, -ung

Grammar: We will hit proper nouns hard this week. I have introduced it before so I am hoping that is a little easier for the kids to pick up now that we are done with nouns!
