Ladybugs Learning...

Ladybugs are Learning....
Week of September 17th-21st

Cafe (Literacy block): We are reading non-fiction stories about apples. We will focus on review the parts of the book (front cover, back cover, title page) and the role of the author/illustrator.  This time is a little different because the books look different than the fiction stories we have read.  By the end of the week, your student should be able to identify a book as non-fiction using the information and pictures as clues. 

Sight words: the, can

Previously taught words: I, a, see, like

Word Study:  This week we are learning all about letter "Aa".  We will learn how to write the letter, the sound it makes, and words that begin with that letter. 

Writing: We will write about apples.  We will progress through the week from copying one word to label their picture to writing a complete sentence with spaces between their words at the end of the week.

Math:  We will continue to count to identify a total and practice writing our numbers 0-10.  We are working to know different parts that can make up numbers 3-5 (ex. 2 and 1 make 3 or 0 and 3 make 3). This is also known as being able to "decompose" a number into two parts.
