Dear Families,

Happy New Year!  We have been busy in room 104 getting into the swing of the new year and learning so much.

This month, we will be focusing in whole group on the digraphs sh, th, ch and wh and will be doing lots of writing in our writing folders and in our Science and Social Studies topics.  We have been learning about winter, snowflakes, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the New Year.  We will start our topic study on The Moon after the long weekend.

As part of this study, I will be sending home a moon journal for children to draw the moon as it looks that particular night.  Students will take turns bringing the journal home and I ask that you please make sure it is returned the following day.  The journal will come complete with directions and examples and a website to visit if the moon is not visible on that particular night.  Have fun with this, as your children will be excited to have their turn.  We will be studying the moon phases and reading lots of books and doing projects on the moon.  It should be a fun learning experience!

In Math, we are learning about place value and continuing to focus on developing a strong number sense.  we do math centers every day and these provide the children an opportunity to practice the topics we are covering in Math lessons. 

Please let me know if you have any questions for me by emailing me anytime.  I will do my best to get back to you quickly.  Again, Happy New Year and I look forward to watching your children grow in 2019!!!

Mrs. Breen
