Monday
First will always start off our day with a morning meeting and the calendar routine. 

Then, we start our math lesson. Monday we will look at position words. In our journals, they will pick either a 2D or 3D shape to label and draw an example of the shape. 

Word Work-Introduce vowel E, word family -ed, and HF word are. 

Reading- In reading, we just got the new reading series from McGraw-Hill. I am not using my literature books for the reading lessons. It makes me sad! I try to use my book collection during science, social studies, art, and music. I like to teach in a thematic way by using the literature that matches the season, holiday, etc. McGraw-Hill does not follow that format. However, I do like the stories. I just miss my traditional stories. The skill we are focusing on is text features and main idea.

Writing- Students will learning about opinions and work on pronouns.

In science, we are comparing animals and humans. We are also working on our gardens. It is nice to live where we can work on a garden in the winter.
