It was a pleasure meeting each of you at conferences and discussing your child’s progress! I am very proud of their growth!

In reading workshop, we will continue to strengthen our thoughts while we read by adding text evidence.   Also, each child will set their own reading goal and brainstorm strategies how to reach that goal! In writing workshop, the children will learn to include poet’s tools into their poems: similes, metaphors, personification, precise action words, voice, and more. In addition, we will work with a partner to edit our poems. In math, we are in Unit 3, Subtraction with Regrouping. We are learning to regroup from the tens and hundreds. We will challenge ourselves by learning to double regroup! In Science, we completed our Materials and Properties Unit by designing hats that would protect us from the sun.  Children studied structure and function of the materials used as they designed their hats.  I hope you enjoyed reviewing your child’s hat!

We return to Social Studies this month as we compare two New Jersey scientists, Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison. We will wrap up December by studying holidays around the world.
