que, qui, co, cu. The use of personal pronouns and verbs (action words).
Yo, tu, el/ella, nosotros, ustedes, ellos.
Writing: Students will edit their story by making sure they have spelled
sight words correctly and included spaces between each word.
Math: This week we will continue to study value. Students are working
towards Understanding that the two digits of a two-digit number represent
amounts of tens and ones. Understand the following as special cases:
a. 10 can be thought of as a bundle of ten ones – called a “ten.”
b. The numbers from 11 to 19 are composed of a ten and one, two, three,
four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
c. The numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 refer to one, two, three,
four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine tens (and 0 ones).
Social Studies– Celebration Dia de los muertos ‘ Nov 1-2. The
students will locate Mexico in the map and will learn about this important
tradition and how Mexicans celebrate it.
They will also continue to learn about maps and characteristics of landforms. They will build an understanding of the basic elements of geographic representations using maps (cardinal directions and map symbols). We will look at maps to identify our continent, country, state, and
city. We will also learn about the other continents and oceans.
