Happy New Year

Welcome Back

Hello families and friends. I hope you are coming off of a restful winter holiday and excited about this new year. We are hitting the ground running this week - it will be filled with excitement and a lot of learning.

Homework and Math

Blue folders and Homework will be going home today. Please review blue folders tonight and return tomorrow with your student. We are starting a math unit on measurement and time, and the homework will have much to do with analog clocks and the language surrounding time. If you have any questions about the homework please contact me.

Writing and Social Studies

We are going to continue our writing process this week as we work on our informational books. Students have already selected a topic in which they are becoming an expert on. This week we will be refining our introductions, and seeking ways to make our facts and ideas more exciting and interesting to read.


In about a week, we will be starting our next Social Studies. In this unit we will return to the history of San Luis Obispo County and also study the concept of citizenship.
