Now that we know our alphabet, please encourage your child to write by helping you write lists, like grocery lists, or thank you cards, or Birthday invitations.  Please allow your child to use "kid-spelling" and do not give him/her letters or sounds. Your child should be able to write the popcorn words we have introduced.  Thanks for helping us become writers!

Please bundle up your children in layers!  It is very cold in our classroom and outside!
Please have your child bring shoes to change into if they wear winter boots to school.

P.E. (gym) is on Tuesday, please where sneakers. (sneakers are a good idea everyday as we will occasionally go outside to explore)

Math:  We will continue to work with addition and subtraction. We will learn how to compare/contrast attributes of 2-D and 3-D (cone, cube, cylinder, sphere) objects.    3 D Shapes I know Rap

Reading: We will begin to read nonfiction texts about bugs!

Writing:  We will write and draw about the nonfiction books we read.

Science: In April we will learn about Bugs and create a project based on what we have learned about bugs.  So, we may need more cardboard boxes for dioramas!  We will need clear 2-Liter soda bottles for an Art bug project.

Social Studies:  We will learn the Responsive Classroom social curriculum.
