Please read and save the Family Letter for Unit 6 that will be attached to your child’s homework sheet. To prepare for Unit 6, have your child watch the videos by clicking on the pictures below to help them count money, memorize doubles facts and enrich their understanding of using doubles as helper facts.

Reading

We are starting a new unit on Character this upcoming week. We will be analyzing characters based on their appearance and actions. 

When reading with your child at home, ask them:  

Who is in the story?

What does the character look like?

What does the character do?

How would you describe the character’s personality?

Writing

We will begin learning how to write a character description based on their appearance and actions.

Science:

We will begin our weather study. Your child will take on the role of meteorologist as they observe and evaluate weather using our classroom weather station.
