Welcome to Room 109(Week of 4/15/18)

Our “Treasures” unit will continue this week with a look at treasures we can share at home.  We will read several stories about siblings, including the realistic fiction selection, Peter’s Chair , by Ezra Jack Keats.  As we read, we will focus on looking at story structure, character, setting, and plot to help us comprehend our stories.


Phonics lessons this week will focus on compound words.  We will also learn about the sounds of ew, ue, and ui (new, Sue, suit).


The class will continue to work on various addition and subtraction strategies revolving around making tens.  Room 109 will also begin to learn about telling time as we learn about digital and analog clocks.  We will practice telling time to the hour and half hour on both.
