Science: Planting & life cycle of a plant


Social Studies: Texas Flag, pledge and US Flag and pledge

Counting to 50 ...and beyond!!

For the 2nd 9 weeks, students were expected to count by 1s to 50. It's always tricky to remember what comes after the "9s" (29...39...49...)

Practice counting at home with your child as much as you can! Count as you clean up, as you walk up the stairs, as you drive in the car... etc. By the end of the year, students will have to count to 120 by 1s. Feel free to push them past 50 now!!

Thank you! :)

January Presentations- Due January 25th

Yesterday I sent home the outline for our January Presentations. This one is one of my favorites! The kids will be presenting on what they want to be when they grow up! :) Feel free to be creative.


If you notice, at the bottom of the paper, it encourages you to use index cards or cue cards for kids to read off of as notes. Please do not use the outline paper during the presentation. Some of the kids don't need notes at all, and that's fine! Index cards for each line can help remind them of what to say.


Also notice that the outline mentions your child's "visual" they bring can be an outfit they wear to represent what they want to be when they grow up! Again, have fun with this and enjoy practicing with your child. Each month we are blown away at how great they are! Let me know if you have any questions :)
