Happy New Year!

We are excited to be back to school! We wrote resolutions for the new year early this week. We continue to learn about and work on "list and label" books. We started a new class book with a list of all the reasons writing makes us feel good!

Reading Workshop

We have begun a new Reading workshop unit focusing on fiction. We learned about the differences between realistic fiction and fantasy. We are learning to retell stories by telling about the characters, the setting and the main events in order.

Math News

We are finishing chapter 3 which focused on numbers 6 through 10. We will focus on the number 10 and comparison of numbers through 10 in the next chapter.

January Jokes

Please don't forget to help your child learn a joke and send in a written version so I can create our class joke book. Thanks! We are having fun listening to all the jokes!
