Return From Holiday Break!


I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Christmas break.  I enjoyed getting to hear the children tell me what their favorite Christmas gifts were.  


Communication Arts: We are finally starting to learn long vowels.  We are going to start learning Long A.  We are also going to be working with sensory details when reading and writing.  We will also be learning about autobiographies and biographies.  I have attached a paper that I would like for you help help your child fill out and return to school on Monday.  We are going to be writing autobiographies.  


Math: We are going to start learning to subtract 7, 8, and 9 from a number..  I sent home new math flashcards this week.  We will continue sending home flashcards in their baggie for you to give to them each night.  Mrs. Altiser tells us that we must make an emphasis on this because they get to upper grades and do not know their facts.  So, please help your child to be successful with their math facts.  Return them to school each day.  Thanks!  .  


Social Studies:  We are starting to learn and work on famous Americans. We are starting with Martin Luther King Jr.  


Science:  We will be taking a break on science.


Spelling: Spelling tests will be every Thursday.  Please remember to practice spelling words every night at home.
