Our daily routine includes i-READY hands-on Math, English Language Arts, which includes handwriting, spelling, grammar, creative writing, guided reading lessons with rotating stations of phonics, decoding, word work, paired reading, writing, computers, and listening. We also have fun and exciting interactive Science Kits including: the"Nature of Science"; " "Technology and Tools"; "Plants and Animals"; and "Growing and Changing". Our Social Studies unit theme centers on "People and Places" and includes: "Geography, Citizenship, Economics, History, and Landmarks". Each week our class will visit a different country and explore its culture.
