A Little Christmas Cheer

Dear Parents-

Happy New Year! I hope that all of you had a fantastic Christmas holiday filled with family, fun, and lots of food. I want to thank everyone again for all of the wonderful gifts and goodies you gave me before our break. You truly are a wonderful group of parents and your generosity has been a blessing.

I am looking forward to this second semester of learning. I am here to encourage and support your child as we move forward into more challenging areas of our curriculum. As always I appreciate your support and help, Together- we can make this a successful school year for your child.

Reading

Our emphasis for the next few weeks will be learning how to distinguish important from unimportant information in nonfiction books. I’ll use various features of non-fiction books (table of contents, glossary, photographs, captions, maps, index, etc.) to help them get the most from their reading.


We will do an author study on Jan Brett.


Phonics - This week we will focus on the long a sound spelled a_e, ai and ay.

Writing

This week we will continue to write poetry. We are preparing for a very special event to take place at the end of the month. More information coming soon!


We will continue to review nouns, verbs, and adjectives.

Math

We will introduce subtraction with larger numbers this week. We will review and learn some new strategies to use when solving subtraction problems.


We will implement a new daily “math minute” practice to aid in problem solving and understanding place value.

Social Sciences

We will begin a unit on animals.
