It's the start of a new calendar year.  We have many fun learning activities planned. In Math we are working on counting money and being able to give correct amount when purchasing an item.  We will be studying the states of matter.  We will be doing a lot of hands-on activities.  Your child will have homework each night. He or she will need to study math facts and sight words each night.  Please continue to read with or to your child each day.  We are looking forward to having a great year. Feel free to contact me at bnelson@mcpsweb.org or at 372-4770.
