The Juliano Journal
January 4-January 15
The January WEB calendar was sent home before winter break. Please continue to make sure that your child is reading for a minimum of 20 minutes each night, and that the minutes are being recorded. The minutes that your child is reading can also be recorded on the Magic Waters and/or Six Flags log sheet. This log is due back to school on January 22. It is very important for your child to read at home on a daily basis.
Have a great weekend!
We have been spending our language arts time talking about figurative language. We have discussed similes, metaphors, personification and alliteration. The students constructed three dimensional snow globes which depicted these types of figurative language. They look amazing!
The children have also been working on a poster depicting their five most memorable events from 2015. It has been so exciting for them to look back at the past year and remember some of the fun events that happened!
Next week we will begin our fourth unit in our Units of Study curriculum. In this unit, we will be reading about migration and immigration. I think the students will really enjoy learning about these two subjects.
