The Weeks in Review

I hope you all had an incredible Winter break! I missed seeing each and every one of your kids at school, but Monday they came in bursting with smiles, stories, and a yawns. I tried to get as many stories as I could, and I hope the time was enjoyable for everyone! Back at school though we didn't waste any time getting back to work.


In Science, we spent the weeks before Winter break going over the relationships between the Sun, the Earth, and the Moon. We learned about seasons and days and what causes each one. We also spent time walking the solar system (literally), learning about size and scale and the vastness of space, and how craters are left on the Moon. We had a lot of fun learning opportunities those last few days before break!


In Social Studies, we have learned about life in some of the early colonies. These early colonies will lead to the formation of a new nation, but we aren't there yet. This past week we studied the original colonies and what made each one unique.

On Deck: Science & Social Studies

Early next week we will begin learning about the landforms on Earth and how they are created. In Social Studies, we will begin our projects on the early colonies and have to convince our classmates to join our colony!
