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 handwriting expectations and letter formations.  The students are reviewing what makes a complete sentence and focusing on subjects.  They are also working on alphabetical order.

Math -   The students are working on place value and number sense.  We are reviewing tens and ones.  In are also discussing math facts and practicing mental math.  We are continuing to work in our math journals wtih some problem solving.

        ** Math Games** 

Science -  All of the caterpillars have moved on to the chrysalis stage.  We are making booklets as we discuss the butterfly's life cycle.  We are also beginning learning about the Monarch's Migration.
Social Studies and Global Awareness -   We are reviewing what  STARR means.  We have read and talked about the story, How Do You Fill Someone's Bucket?  We are also using maps as we discuss the Monarch's Migration route.
