I'm working on uploading pictures of the children from our visit to the Hospital, the Smoke House visit and the Nature Company visit! I apologize that they are coming out sideways!! When I downloaded them they were in the right positions! I'm trying to figure out how to rotate them the correct way! Sorry for the stiff necks!


)ur new unit in math is measurement.  It is a fun unit as the children will practice measuring items in school as well as home.  

I've learned about a great website called mathplayground.com which has many activities for practice and reinforcement.  



*PLEASE PRACTICE ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION FACTS AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE*


The children have been practicing with poetry.  We have written several poems that do not rhyme and have learned about similes, onomatopoeia and alliteration. We will continue to remind the children the importance of using these elements in their writing. This will help readers to visualize what is happening in their written pieces. 
In the new year, we will begin our wonderful multicultural unit on immigration.  More details to follow.

We have begun the new year with map skills and are learning about the continents and oceans.
