This week, our story is a Time for Kids selection entitled "Champions of the World." It details how three players led their Toms River, N.J. Little League team to victory over Japan in the Little League World Series. The players were met with a parade upon their return and were instant hometown heroes.
Skills include: problem/solution, story elements, using an index, and compound words.
Our chapter study of sentence structure continues. We have learned about complete sentences, sentence fragments, the four types of sentences, and subjects and predicates! Quite a bit for the first month of school! Compound sentences will be on our upcoming agenda.
After studying place value, we have moved on to comparing numbers using greater than and less than, and ordering numbers from greatest to least and least to greatest. Our next move will be working with these topics with numbers in the thousands.
Our study of maps continues with working with cardinal and intermediate directions, along with map keys and symbols.
