Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a great holiday! Thank you to all the parents who brought their children to the concert. The students did such as nice job. Also, thanks to everyone who sent food (and presents) for our Christmas party. It was a feast, and a nice way to end the 2013.

We have 4 weeks now before Chinese New Year. During this time, there will be a lot of assessment in preparation for report cards shortly that. In Language, we will be working on a circle story, and we will be starting a Magic Tree House book on dinosaurs. Comprehension strategies will be a focus this month in reading.

In math, we will continue to work on Addition, Subtraction strategies. We will work on Making 10 and Fact families.

We will also be starting a new unit on Magnets in Science. This is always a lot of fun and very "hands on".

Have a great week.
