Language Arts:

This month we will be learning words with short vowel i and words with “ck” at the end.  We will continue with spelling this month.  We are also going to be doing our weekly nursery rhymes, writing, and reading lessons.  Testing is this month, so I will be figuring spelling grades and testing on what we have learned so far in class.


We are going to be continuing to work in our math books this month.  We are learning math games to help with number recognition and other math skills.  The students will be learning addition, as well as money and place value during our daily lessons.

Science and Social Studies:

This month we are learning about community helpers.  We are going to be talking about different jobs in the community and how people help each other while doing a job.  We are also going to be learning about transportation and different ways of getting from here to there.  We will also be discussing communication and the different methods of talking to others.  We also have our Halloween theme this month and will be doing different Halloween related crafts.  The end of the month begins our lesson on cultural diversity, where we learn about different cultures and traditions.
