Mrs. Calloway

What’s Happening in Mrs. Calloway’s Class?

Language Arts-

During the second marking period, we will be spending time talking about nonfiction in both reading and writing.  We will be working to create a step by step “How To” story and discussing nonfiction text features.  We will also be studying authors Leo Lionni and Gail Gibbons.  Also, we are “digging deeper” into the stories we write and trying to figure out the author’s message in the stories we read.

Math –

Math topics this marking period include two and 3 digit subtraction, and place value.  We also continue to practice our fact fluency using the Xtra Math program.  This is a great resource to use for extra practice at home!

Content-

Our continued focus for the first half of the year is social studies.  We will be studying Native Americans in the four main regions of the United States.  We will also continue to study map skills and learn about people and places that are important in our country’s history.  At the end of the marking period, we will discuss our heritage and cultural diversity within our country.

 

Thanks for all that you do at home to support your child’s learning in the classroom!
