We have been busy since we have come back from Christmas Break! It's hard to believe we are already a 1/2 way through January!
We have started a new writing unit in which students will be writing about their opinions. We have already done one neat little piece of writing as a "warm up" to our unit. Students got to write about their favorite feature of themselves and explain why they liked that feature! They turned out super cute and it was a great way for students to think of all of the good things they can do (although when it came to writing, they only wrote about one feature)
We are currently working in book clubs and reading some fun little novels. Students also have jobs that they are supposed to complete with each assignment and use those assignments to help keep the discussion going in their small group.
We have finished up our 8th topic/ unit that covered mental math and estimation. Our next topic will cover addition and subtraction algorithms.
We have started talking about what matter is and next week will talk about how matter can change and how it can be measured in each state.
100th Day of School-
We are celebrating Tuesday as our 100th day of school! To do this, your child is welcome to dress up like they are 100 or they can create and wear a simple shirt, bracelet, necklace, etc that shows 100 of something. (Even the number "100".)
January's Tiger Pride is next Friday at 2:30! See you there!!!
