Welcome back! January is a busy month for us and it is a turning point in the kids’ learning. After a restful winter break the children came back ready to learn and started participating with great confidence in our classroom activities.
During math time, we continue building addition and subtraction fluency, grouping objects by tens and ones and recognizing 2D and 3D shapes. The word problems we solve are increasing in complexity and we will start our unit in measurement.
Our science block focuses on the solar system. The next couple of weeks we will learn about the phases of the moon and the stars.
Our literacy block will emphasize reading fluency, reading comprehension and journal writing. It is exciting to see students reading independently with dedication and confidence!
Homework: Some days you will see a picture of the phases of the moon on your child’s agenda. Take a few minutes to go outside and observe the moon, then circle the picture in the agenda that better matches the moon that you and your child observed in the sky. I will send a blackboard message everyday your child has homework.
