January 18th-NO SCHOOL
Next week, I will be adding "Maker Space" to our afternoon centers. This will be a time where students use recyclable items to create something new. Anytime you have any empty containers send them our way.
Please try to arrive at school by 7:40. When the final bell rings at 7:50 we begin our day with our poem and first reading group.
Our class has done a great job keeping up with jackets, hats, gloves and scarves. Please make sure their name is in the coat just in case!
What are we learning?
*A note in the Tuesday folder will describe this reading strategy in more detail.
Writing-We will be working on the Fab 5 of writing. Stretching out words, using a capital letter, spacing, punctuation and re-reading the story.
*Sentence dictation will be apart of the ELI (Early Literacy Inventory) Middle of Year Assessment.
Math- We will continue our unit of study on shapes. The first 2 weeks are focused on 2D shapes.
Social Studies- Students are learning about Dr. Martin Luther King and his contributions.
