Math: We are learning different ways to count numbers 0-100. We are counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s. We are finding patterns in our calendar routines and in our days in school number line. We are working our understanding place value. This helps with understanding greater and less than, especially with the larger numbers. This number knowledge leads to addition and subtraction. We will learn about different shapes, 2D and 3D. We will also learn about weight and capacity.
Social Studies: We will work together to build our classroom community and learn about our world around us. We will learn about traditions, in our family and around the world. We will also learn about all the special holidays celebrated throughout the year. We will learn about American Symbols, like the flag and bald eagle. We will learn about our community and even make a minuture model of the town we live in.
Science: Throughout the year we will learn about weather, forces and motion, and plants and animals. To reinforce what we are learning at school we will visit an apple orchard, pick apples and learn more about seasons, weather, and plants. We will have a visit from a farmer who will bring us eggs we will have to care for, then watch hatch. Then, we get to care for the chicks! We will also visit Riverbend to learn more about animal habitats with hands on learning.
