* Important change! Eager Reader will begin FEBRUARY 1st...not January 15th.
What we are learning this week January 20th-23rd:
Phonics: letter shapes
Reading: Wondering about text- students are introduced to the concept of thinking about what they are reading, while they are reading. This week we are using "Brave Bear" to practice this skill.
Writing: Spaces between words- using our new "space men" and introduction to How To writing
Math: geometric shapes
Science: Exploring with liquids and solids- defining them and some of the energies that change the states of matter.
Please remember to have students wear tennis shoes girls wear shorts underneath skirts/dresses on P.E. days.
Library books will be returned to the library early Friday morning.
