Monday was Family Day and we hope that everyone enjoyed time with those who matter most. Hopefully you were also able to enjoy time outdoors in the sunshine and bearable temperatures after weeks of cold and stormy weather.
Curriculum updates: We have begun our unit on Data Management in Math. We will learn how to gather and organize data in tally charts, pictographs, and bar graphs, as well as how to read and analyze data. In Science, we will begin to explore Properties of Liquids and Solids. In Language, we are making connections and visualizing when reading. In Writing, we are beginning to look at the features of fiction texts, in particular fictional narratives (e.g., a "make-believe story"). You can help your child at home when he/she reads a fiction book by asking him/her to retell it to you - Who are the characters? What is the setting (where and when the story takes place)? What is the problem? What are the 4-5 main events in the story? What is the solution (How is the problem solved)?
