Happy New Year!
We start the new year with an author study of Jan Brett reading many of her wonderful, detailed books. We will do many activities including acting out some of her books. We continue writing, sounding out new words and using our word wall for sight words. In science we will discuss the weather, our surrounding environment including our adopted trees outside. We will also start a new unit called Materials and Motion learning all about different materials such as wood, fabric, and paper and how things move. In math we will learn all about those "tricky teens", addition, and shapes. We will also will have some new learning projects this month and continue with phonics, Flashlight Fridays, and 4th Grade Buddies. The life of a kindergartner!!!
