Happy New Year! I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday break.

Please don't forget to fill out your reading logs for Rocky's Readers. There are prized for individuals and for our entire class if everyone participates! You will also find in folders a homework packet for the break to keep everyone's mind fresh and a work out log from Coach Swain. I included 5 books which should be returned to school when we return.

Our Learning Goals

Reading: We will continue focusing on using decoding strategies when reading. We will use Time for Kids and fiction text to ask and answer questions about a text. Students will use close reading strategies throughout the week in full class and small group reading.

Writing: We will finish our "how-to" writing about how to build a snowman. Students will then have the chance to choose their own "how-to" topic.

Math: We will be wrapping up adding 3 numbers and using our friendly number 10 for now. We will be moving on to measurement, comparing objects using standard units of measurement.

Science: We will begin force and motion next week.

Social Studies: We will be learning about how new years is celebrated around the world. We will also be working on personal mission statements and new years goals.
