Behavior Goals…
Our classroom and hallway behavior goal this week is “workstation rules.” Our lunchroom goal is “I will not play with  my food.”

Literacy
We are finishing Unit 9 this week! Our essential question is “How can things in nature be used to make new things?” We are learning long o: o_e. We are learning the high-frequency words look & where. Our vocabulary words are: create, designs, knowledge, natural resources, and weave. Our category words this week are foods made from grain. Our grammar skill for the week is adjectives. Our high-frequency words will be tested this week. We will be tested on said, want, here, me, this, what, help & too. Practice, practice, practice! 🙂
