Please check the this announcement page often to see what we are working on in the classroom.



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 Unit 11, Money.  In this unit the children will learn how to recognize a $1, $5, $10 and $20 bills.  Using bills and coins children will learn how to count and show money up to $20.  They will also learn to compare amounts of money, and add and subtract money using real-world problems.

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*


In our writing unit the class has completed their alliteration poems and gathering information on a non-fiction topic. We are now creating the rough draft for our letter writing unit and look forward to sending it out this week.

We have also begun our multicultural unit on immigration and look forward to learning about the different countries that we are from! The children have been hearing stories about people who have emigrated from their country and immigrated to the U.S., Ellis and Angel Island, Statue of Liberty, and those "push and pull factors" that force many to leave and why they are drawn to the U.S.  

The next science unit will be "Treasures from Earth." The class will be learning about rocks, soils, fossils, erosion, weathering and natural resources. Also, saving our natural resources.
