  What can we learn by exploring space?

Note regarding RtI time -  
Individual classroom teachers are responsible for the teaching of reading, math, and writing skills to their own classroom students.  During the 30 min. RtI time students divide up into various groups and go to get some additional reading, math, or writing instruction or skill reinforcement.                          

Language -   We are discussing what is needed for a complete sentence.  We are also discussing subjects of a sentence.  We are working on some expository writing.

Math -   We are reviewing math facts for addition and subtraction.  The students are also discussing number sense and place value.   We are also using Study Island.


        ** Math Games** 

Science -     
                   We have begun a special project.  We are raising Monarch butterflies from very tiny caterpillars.  Many began as only 1/2 cm. long!  They are eating and growing very well!  We now have 3 chyrsalises!!

Social Studies and Global Awareness -  We are learning what "Filling a Bucket" means.  We are also learning about a Responsive Classroom.  We are doing some writing to fill up a friend's bucket.
