Next week, we are learning...
In reading, we will focus on retelling stories. When we retell, we talk about the characters, setting, and major events in the story. It will be so helpful for your child to retell the story to you every night. Don't stop there, though! Your child can also practice retelling after watching a television show or movie!
For Writer's workshop, students will continue to write opinion pieces. We are teaching students to use reasons to support their opinion. Teachers will begin to collect writing samples to show you at the February conference.
In math we will continue discussing and learning about 2D and 3D shapes. It is important that students begin to recognize shapes in the world.
In social studies, we will be learning all about the life of Dr. Martin Luther King. Kindergarteners will need to be able to tell someone that MLK believed that all people should be treated the same and that he was from Atlanta.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Vowel Sounds and CVC Words
Don't forget we will be celebrating Mrs. Ruffing's birthday Tuesday, January 19th.
Friday, January 22nd is the 100th Day of School! MPES will celebrate all day long with 100th day activities. This year we will be dressing with 100 of something (of your choice) on our clothes! Be sure this is something tht your child can wear all day long. Each grade level will have a winner for the most creative outfit. There will also be a school parade.
