Monday

We wrote about the month on January! It looks like we love to play in the snow. The children are becoming such great writers! They enjoy writing time, publishing class books and soon will be making their own books.

Tuesday

During math time, the children have been learning about data collection. They are learning to ask a question, collect data and then display the data, which is then used to answer the question. The children have participated in whole group graphing activities and will soon be creating their own survey questions.

Wednesday

Snow day!

Thursday

This week, we started a unit on winter. The children will learn what animals do in the winter (hibernate, grow thick fur, find food), discuss winter weather, what happens to plants in the winter and winter sports. We had fun making snowflakes, which we used to decorate our window!

Friday

The children listened to the story Martin’s Big Words by Doreen Rappaort. They learned about Martin Luther King Jr. and why we celebrate him with a national holiday. Click on the link below to see the story! We also learned about him by reading our Let's Find Out magazine. Using this resource is giving the students practice in reading non-fiction and well as teaching them social studies and science in a fun way! See the link to Let's Find Out below in the website section.
