Happy December! I can't believe I am decorating the classroom for the winter holidays. Before you know it, we will be getting out for our 2 week break (only 14 school days-moms).We had an outstanding week at school....the kids came back ready to LEARN.
In the classroom:
Math: 2D and 3D shapes, comparing numbers (greater than, less than and equal to) and word problems
Writing Workshop: I can't believe how this skill has taken off.....these kids are writing great stories and using learned strategies (sounding words out and resources around the room). We will concentrate on capitilazation over the next couple of weeks.
Social Studies: Statue of Liberty and Holiday Traditions
Words of the Week: look and are
Please note: We have covered ALL the red, orange and yellow words (your child should KNOW these words). Also, your child should know you, run, play and like from the green row!!!!! Please make sure you are reinforcing this skill at home....I will begin assessments soon (report card go out in January :)
