We are gearing up for our 5th week of school here in Arizona. We have worked on procedures and expectations the last month and we are rocking and rolling through our units in reading, writing, math and social studies! This upcoming week we are doing great things with our Journey's story "Schools Around the World" I have loved utilizing a few packs from TPT to supplement my reading curriculum both for whole group and small group instruction!
In addition we are well into our first quarter of Saxon lessons. We are also focusing on our first unit of number sense for our Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards in math.
We are jumping into mapping skills this week after learning about continents, oceans and landforms these past two weeks. I'm excited to be using my Mapping Skills pack on TPT all week. We will be building our mapping vocabulary by understanding terms like map, globe, key, scale, birds eye view, and grid. We will be learning about the 3 types of maps including political, physical and thematic maps!
