Dear Parents,

I hope that you and your families are staying safe in the snow. I know that your children are enjoying playing outdoors! We completed a writing activity last week where they named their favorite winter activities including making snowmen, going sledding, making snow angels, baking cookies and drinking hot chocolate.

We had a busy week last week following Christmas break.

In Language Arts, we completed Unit 5 in Adventures of the Superkids, and started Unit 6 which includes memory words: said, only, you, of, here, and pattern  long vowel words: go, no, so, be, he, me, she, we, hi, and bonus words: season and winter. We learned how to identify long vowels, (longs vowels say their own name, “a”, “e”, “i”, “o”, “u” and sometimes “y”) and how to mark long vowels with a long vowel mark/line over the vowel. We practiced distinguishing between long and short vowels and reviewed how to mark short vowels with a cup symbol over the vowel.

In Religion, we read about the feast of the Epiphany when the three kings visited baby Jesus bringing Him gifts. We talked about our gifts for baby Jesus, including our prayers, our love and our kind deeds for others. We wrote our New Year’s Resolutions for 2019 which included these gifts for Jesus.

In Math, we began our unit on place value of tens and ones, and practiced writing numbers on a place value chart. We also began practicing telling time to the hour. If your child has a watch, please encourage them to wear it to school as we are continuing to practice this new skill. Please continue to review all math skills on splashmath.com for ongoing practice. 

In Social Studies, we have been talking about Animal Habitats. Your students are excited about their Animal Habitat Projects. (due Jan. 31). Thank you for your time/efforts in supporting your student in this cross curricular activity. They may bring their project to school early if they wish.

In Science, we are continuing our unit on states of matter. The snow and ice provide an excellent example for students on the changing states of matter for water!

Thank you for all the time you spend reading and practicing math facts with your children. It really shows in their daily classroom skills. Keep up the great work!

See you at school this week.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Socarras
