This month in science we will learn about the different parts of an apple and begin to learn about the four seasons. We will learn what happens to our environment during each season, how the weather changes, and learn about how to dress for each season.

In social studies, we will be learning what makes a good citizen and how to be a good citizen in our school community. We will be working with our school theme kindness begins with me, and learning how we can choose kindness on the playground, in the classroom, at lunch, and outside of school.

In math, we have introduced our calendar routines and are practicing how to identify the month of the year and days of the week. The pattern we are focusing on this month is an ABCD pattern. We are also learning what math workshop is and how to do math to self, math with a buddy, and math on the iPad. We will be practicing how to rotate through centers and work independently.

In literacy, our focus has been setting up literacy centers. Like with math we are learning how to do read to self, read to someone, work on writing, listening to reading, iPad skills, and word work. These centers are being introduced slowly and we are still learning how to read and work independently. Students are working on building their reading stamina by reading books in 3 ways; reading the pictures, reading the words, and retelling the story. Our goal for students is to be able to sit independently for at least 10 minutes during reading to self time.

In religion, our focus is learning what prayer is and how to prayer to God. We are working on making the Sign of the Cross and talking to God.
