Welcome Back! Brrrrrr…January is here with a chill! Please make sure your child comes to school with a heavy winter coat, hat, and gloves. We try to go out to recess every day if the weather cooperates.
In reading, the students are continuing to focus on finding the main idea and details of non-fiction stories. They are also still working on finding the story elements of fiction stories. As your child reads their homework books, ask them to tell you the character, setting, problem and solution of each story.
In math, we are working on place value (tens, ones) and addition facts. We will keep on testing math facts each Friday. We have also started a huge math project called their Number Scroll. They will be working on writing their numbers to 1,000!
We have begun a Social Studies unit on Needs and Wants. We are discussing what they actually need to survive vs. what they would like to have. We will begin a Science Unit at the end of the month on Solids and Liquids.
