Welcome Back!!! We hope everyone enjoyed their winter break. Today in writing, we wrote about our winter break. (L---) In math, we did some mental math and then we did some jumpstart math. The challenging part was a problem that involved money. We went to the movie and our ticket cost $3.25 and we gave a $5 bill and we had to figure out how much change we got. This would be a good problem to practice using different amounts. (K----)
We started our new Science unit called Animal Life Cycles. Today we looked at the different groups that animals can be classified as and what is used to group them. For example: body covering, # of legs, how they breathe, where they live etc. Ask your child to name as many different groups as they can.
Monday, Jan. 15 we are going to the Zoo. We will be doing a program to go with our Science unit. Forms need to come in this week. These were handed out just before the break or put in the report card.
In backpacks you will find a yellow invoice notice from the office.
Report card envelopes need to be returned
Field trip forms are now due
Book orders due Jan. 19.
