A Peek At Our Week...

This week is full of fun! Read on to see what we have been working on...

Math Workshop

This week we will be exploring 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional shapes! We are exploring the attributes of shapes and learning how shapes can be made from other shapes!

Reader's Workshop

In Reader's Workshop, we are continuing with our unit on Characters. We are working on learning all about the character so that we can read our books with expression, gestures and movements! This week, we will be working on reading 2 Christmas Plays and bringing our characters to life!

Writer's Workshop

This week, we will finish our Persuasive Writing unit! We will work on conventions of writing. We will work on beginning our sentences with a capital letter, ending our sentence with punctuation and using our best handwriting. Please encourage this with your children at home.

Social Studies

Snowflake, our Elf, has kept us very, very busy with his travels to learn all about Christmas Around the World! We have learned the customs and traditions of England, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Sweden and Holland! We have had so much fun learning with Snowflake!
