During the month of March, we will learn about Lent and Easter. Towards the end of the month, we will begin a new unit, Plants.
Some of the ELA standards that we will cover are:
-With prompting and supporting, retell, dramatize, or illustrate a story that has been read aloud, including characters, a beginning, and an ending
-With prompting and support, ask and answer who, what, where, when, and why questions about a nonfiction/informational text
-With prompting and support, given a sound and a choice of two words, choose the word that begins with the given sound
-Blend two spoken syllables, saying the whole word
We will begin our 4th math module, comparison of length, weight, and capacity. This module will last the next 5-6 weeks.
The standards we will cover are:
-Describe and compare measurable attributes (length and weight)
For religion, we will learn about Lent and Easter. We will also work on doing kind things for others to prepare our hearts for Easter.
In science, we will plant seeds and observe what happens as they begin to grow.
During social studies, we will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and make some shamrock decorations to send to some of the assisted living facilities near us as a service project.
I would like to make you aware of the dates of important celebrations throughout this school year. There will be a symbol (*) next to the celebrations where all families are invited and a (-) symbol when specific family members are invited. All activities will take place in the morning.
