*Lesson Plans for the week of _04/29
SuperKids: Students have started Units 3 and 4 of More Adventures of the SuperKids. In these Units students will associate the vowels with their long sounds, decode long-vowel trickers, and decode words with aw and all. Students will read contractions formed with is, am, are, and will. Students will be exposed to homophones you’re and your, recognize and understand memory words and pattern words, and review multiple meaning words. Students will plan and draft a personal narrative as part of the writing process.
- Monday: Students will be introduced to contractions with will and learn the difference between homophones you’re and your. Students will be introduced to some long-vowel trickers.
- Tuesday: Students will have practice decoding long-vowel trickers and will be introduced to our spelling list of trickers (paper, even, silent, open, music). Students will also read “A Super Day at Happy Land” followed by comprehension questions.
- Wednesday: Students will answer questions in their Student Books to check comprehension on the story read yesterday. Writing Time! Students will begin to plan a personal narrative.
- Thursday: Students will have time to practice writing their spelling list. Writing Time! Students begin to put their plans into writing when they begin to draft their personal narratives.
- Friday: Students will be at the Graduation Mass for the 8th Grade Class.
Math: Progress in Math
Ch. 8: Money and Time
This chapter focuses on some of the most relevant connections young children make with mathematics every day. The common plea, “Is it time yet?” shows an innate curiosity about time. As children learn to read clocks and calendars, they connect their own routines with concepts of duration, sequence, and elapsed time. Money skills are highly motivating and represent fundamental mathematical concepts.
This week’s objectives:
- Monday: Students will find the value of a group of coins consisting of a quarter, dimes, nickels, and pennies. Students will compare an amount of money to the price of an item.
- Tuesday: Students will identify a dollar bill and its value: 100 cents. Students will also identify the coins equivalent to a dollar. Students will use coins to show different ways to make a dollar.
- Wednesday: Students will begin to learn to tell time to the hour. Students will write time in standard notation.
- Thursday: Students will begin to tell time to the half hour. Students will write time in standard notation.
- Friday: Students will be at the Graduation Mass for the 8th grade.
Religion: We Believe
Chapter 25: We Honor Mary and the Saints
This Weeks Objectives: Students will see Mary’s role as the mother of Jesus, express our love for Mary, describe the ways the Church honors Mary, understand that the saints were special followers of Jesus, and highlight ways the Church honors the saints.
Students will begin a New Unit called “Discovering Life”. In this Unit students will explore the properties of living and non-living things. Students will also find that living things have a core set of properties: the grow and need food, water, and protection. In addition living things differ from non-living things in that they are not created or built. Finally, students will gain an understanding of the connection between structure and function.
Investigation 2: Investigating Living Things
During Investigation Two, students will again rely on their observations of objects to find similarities and differences between them. Students will be led to observe specific properties, such as whether or not the object has a heartbeat, breathes, and moves. In this way, students will be guided toward an understanding of properties of living things, such as growth and the need for food, water, and protection.
This Investigation is designed to:
- continue to allow students to practice classifying objects based on their properties
- focus on observations using the five senses
- help students compare living and non-living things
- promote understanding of the common properties of most living things (growth, need for food, water, and protection)
*Lesson plan subject to change
Please Remember to Sign Behavior Sheets as well as any Red Hands to be returned to school the following day. 🙂
**On Monday afternoon we will be having a board game day. Students are encouraged to bring their favorite board or card game to school to play with their classmates.**
