Homework for____________

April 3-7
Happy April1 Its crazy that it is already here! Exciting things are happening in our class in the coming days/weeks!

In Reading we will be learning about retelling a story, specifically a folk tale or fable. A proper retelling includes SEVERAL
elements including the beginning/middle/end, character names, setting, the problem/solution, and if there was a lesson or
moral to learn. We will be learning about the lesson, or moral, in a story as well.

In Language we will be focusing on contractions as our spelling words this week are contractions. Please keep in mind
that any contraction that has I as a base MUST begin with a capital letter, especially on the spelling test on Friday.

In Math we will be extending our knowledge of 2D and 3D shapes and will be performing several math exploration labs with
hands-on practice composing shapes. Students will be constructing objects and figures using basic 2D and 3D shapes (see
Facebook today for pictures of our lesson today!). Our first grade standards require students to be able to decompose
a figure and determine which 2D or 3D shapes were used to create it. Kiddos LOVE all of the hands-on explorations we
will be doing this week to practice.

In Social Science we are deep into our learning about Life Cycles! This week our focus is on the life cycle of butterflies.
Our class caterpillars are in J-Stage and it wont be long before we have Painted Lady Butterflies!
