# A Kindergarten Smorgasboard Schedulin Sunday: May 3rd, 2015

Happy Schedulin Sunday!   Can you believe there are only four more Schedulin Sundays left this year?  And then it’s Summer With Smorgie!  CRAY CRAY people.
As always, here are my weekly lesson plans!  You can download them by clicking on the picture!
This week is all about oceans and Cinco De Mayo and cause and effect!
We will be reading these books this week:
This week our comprehension focus is cause and effect!  We will be using If You Get A Cat A Cupcake and Dragons Love Tacos to work on cause and effect.
For writing we will be finishing up our poetry writing.  I am going to turn our poetry into a book so each of the ‘staches gets a poetry book!
In math, we’re working on subtraction.   We’ve come so far and 99% of us have it mastered.  Now we just want to make sure we have it cemented in our brains!
We’re also going to be writing and naming numbers to 100.
And on Tuesday, it’s letter O for our alphabet countdown so we’re going to taste 5 kinds of Oreos and graph our data!   I mean…Oreos…in math…. #commoncoreisfun and #mathisyummy
