Thematic Unit: 1950 vs. 2013, Then and Now!
Readers use everything they have learned in their community to Really Read!
Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables and sounds (phonemes). Count, produce, blend, and segment syllables in spoken words.
Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.
Readers learn tricks and tools and begin to use them!
Telling your story in pictures and words!
When writing or speaking., use frequently occurring nouns and verbs.
Use a combination of drawings, dictating, and writing to narrate a single event or several loosely linked events, tell about the events in the order in which they occurred, and provide a reaction to what happened.
With guidance and support from adults, recall information from experience or gather information from provided sources to answer a question.
Students will begin to understand and discover small moments in their lives & writing!
Understand Relationships Between Numbers & Quantities
Count to 100 by ones and tens.
Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).
Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object and number with only one object and numeral.
Understand the successive number without recounting, and understand that the quantity is one larger.
Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
ID whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies
Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals.
Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each composition or decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 18 = 10 + 8); understand that these numbers are composed of ten ones and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
We will find and discover +1 and -1 patterns!
