In reading we are focusing on: cause and effect, author’s purpose, facts/details, research sources, compare/contrast, and time order (sequence skills).

In grammar we are learning about nouns. We are reviewing common nouns, and learning proper nouns; singular/plural nouns, plural nouns that change spelling and possessive nouns will be next.

In phonics and spelling we are focusing on: r-controlled vowels (ar, or, ore, oar, er, ir, ur), and contractions.

In math we are focusing on using mental math to add. Understanding expanded form (breaking numbers down) and using a hundred’s chart are important skills we are learning to use. Subtraction of two digit-numbers using these skills will be next.
