Welcome Back to a New Year!

I hope that everyone had a chance to re-charge and enjoy some family time over the holiday.  We did a little poll today and it looks like there was a lot of skating, sliding, and snowshoeing happening!

All month long we will be going penguin crazy!  Literacy, Math, Science will all be connected to this theme whenever possible.  Feel free to bring in any penguin books or stuffies to help decorate our classroom!

Homework:  For the winter term weekly homework will include 20 minutes of reading per night (Raz, or books).  Students will also begin bringing home their spelling words again beginning next week.  Spelling tests are on Friday.  From time to time if there are things that your child did not finish in class, I will send these home as well.  For anyone looking for extra practice please take advantage of our subscription to Raz-kids, Headsprout, and Reflex Math.  You can also check out all the learning focused games under the ‘Great Sites for Kids’ tab of our website.

Tuesday Hike:  In January-March we will be doing our walk every other week (weather permitting).  Our first walk is schedule for January 17th.

Penguin Day:  January 20th is our Penguin Day

Literacy Day:  January 27th
