MCA Practice 

Math
For our first math unit, we will be working on Geometry! More specifically we will focus on quadrilaterals (a fancy
way of saying, "shapes with four sides") and finding the perimeter of different shapes! After that we will move on 
to our place value unit and focus on multi-digit addition and subtraction. 

Reading
To start off the school year, we will practice our balanced literacy stations and then move into our weekly stories. 
We will work on a combination of reading, writing, and spelling skills! 
Spelling = Word Work
This year we are trying a new approach to teaching spelling! We will focusing on word patterns, that will not only
help kids do better in their writing, but also improve their reading! We will also have personal words that the kids 
can choose to work on every week. 

Science
Learning the steps to the Scientific Method is our first big science unit. Students will then use these steps to conduct
short science experiments in the classroom!
