In language arts, we will read a realistic fiction story called "Thunder Cakes". This story is about a little girl who is afraid of thunder storms. Grandma decides to make a cake to distract the child and also help her relax by counting 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9, meaning the storm is 9 miles away. Meanwhile, grandma and child gathered all the ingredients and began making the cake. When the thundercake was done, so was the storm. They celebrated by having a delicious cake to eat. This story will help our students make judgments and well as follow direction. The spelling this week will feature base words ending in -ed and -ing and words with silent consonants -gh, -kn, and -b.
In math, we will review telling time to the nearest minute. Please have your child practice their basic math facts nightly using Mathzor.com
