Skills Learned This Month
Language Arts & Writing
This week the students learned about drawing conclusions and cause and effect. We learned that to draw a conclusion we need to use the clues from a story to help us figure out what will happen. We also learned that a cause is why something happens and an effect is what happened as a result. We practiced with If you take a mouse to the movies and other holiday stories and even incorporated some writing since we are responding to literature this week.
This week the students began learning about the night sky. We talked about the things we can find in the night sky and why they are important. We read about the moon, stars and planets. We even learned how the moon appears to change shape and completed a moon phase project.
This week the students worked on holiday projects and we read lots of holiday themed books to get us excited about the holiday break!
Thank you again for all the generous holiday gifts I received on Friday. I want to wish everyone a very happy and healthy holiday and hope you have lots of time to spend with family and friends. Hopefully I make it back on January 4th to hear everyone's great break.
