The children will be introduced to R-controlled vowels this week: -ar, -or, and -ore. We will learn pronouns, and work on our sentence fluency. 
Our story is "The Garden From Frog and Toad Together". The paired reading is "Garden Good Guys".

The story this week overlaps with our science unit. Over the next few weeks, we will be learning about the parts of a seed, plant, and the what they need to grow. We will be taking a nature walk during science lab this week.  Be sure and ask your children what they saw.
