Reading: Our literacy mini-lessons will be focused on asking and answering questions to demonstrate an understanding of the key details of text (such as who, what, where, when, why, and how), retelling stories, and integrating our Social Studies unit on the Cherokee and Creek cultures.
Writing: We will continue to work on improving personal narratives by varying word choice, using similes, and using the strategy of "show not tell." We will continue to take a piece of writing through the full writing process by brainstorming, writing a rough draft, revising, editing, and producing a final copy.
Spelling: Our spelling pattern will be long i and short i words. Students will be working on spelling words with long and short i's as well as reading words with those spelling patterns.
Math: We will continue to work on using strategies to solve double digit addition and subtraction problems without regrouping. We will be reviewing using a number line, partial sums/place value, and the 100's chart to help solve addition problems. We will also be learning about using base ten manipulatives/drawings to solve both addition and subtraction problems as well as how to use a 100's chart and an open number line to solve subtraction problems. We will also be applying those strategies when solving word problems.
Social Studies: We will compare and contrast the Creek and Cherokee cultures as well as compare and contrast both cultures with our lives in present-day Georgia. We will also learn more about Sequoyah's contributions and how he demonstrates positive citizenship traits.
