A Peek at Next Week...

We will be starting our chapter on time! Students will be exploring using a calendar and understanding the months that occur in the four seasons. They will also be learning how to read time to the hour and to the half hour. This is all our assessments will cover, but I will also be teaching them time to the quarter hour as well as time to the minute. We will have lots of hands-on practice and will not take a test on this until after break.


I encourage you to have your child practice reading and recognizing the time and date on a calendar many times over break!


When we get back, we will be learning about numbers to 120. We will wrap up our semester (wow!) with an assessment that reviews material from chapters 10-15. When we come back in January, we will only have a few chapters left before we move into second grade material!
