Happy New Year

Welcome Back from break! We are off to a flying start in the New Year. In Reading we are working with illustrations and text features, and narrative nonfiction. Science is filled with Earth Materials and we are working with mock rocks. This involves measurement of circumference, depth and diameter. This ties in perfect with our Math, we are working on Perimeter and Area! Shew we sure are busy in room 1202! Everyone returned ready to learn and work hard. I am so proud of them!
