Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a great holiday (mine was very warm, cozy & lazy!)

January will be full of hard work as we continue on with:

Literacy - printing, chunky monkey sounds, reading, writing complete sentences into paragraphs, and a unit on fairy tales

Math - numbers to 100, addition and subtraction to 20, and shapes (2D & 3D)

Science - continuation of the 5 senses

Social - taking part in a community

Please continue to read with your child!  What was considered "at grade level" in the November report card is not the same for the March report card.  Expectations increase as does the year.  The sight word work is also extremely important to keep up with as if a child cannot read these words both in isolation and in context their reading ability will not increase.  Students will continue to bring books home every Monday, snuggle in with your child and go on a great adventure!
