One Hundred Days of School is right around the corner! We will be celebrating this milestone on January 30th. The students will wear a t-shirt with 100 objects on it. (Use the front side of the t-shirt only). This project needs to be done at home. You can be as creative as you like.
This month your child will have the opportunity to purchase books through the International Scholastic Book Clubs. This is an optional activity offered by the school, in case you want to motivate your child to read at home and to increase their own library. With you purchase, our library will accumulate points to redeem for more books for the benefit of you children in our school. The books will arrive to the school in one single delivery, and we will distribute them to the students according to their orders, approximately three weeks after the purchase due date.
For this week, we will be diving into the story of Mouse Soup.
We will be discussing story elements. We will be reviewing what a Table of Content is and what it is used for. The children answer comprehension questions after each story.
This whole quarter we are going to devote our writing to Informative Writing. This kind of writing tells about a person, place, thing, event, or idea. It has sentences that give facts, details, examples, or explanations. This week we are going to research about whales. We will be activating the children´s knowledge about this wonderful mammal and writing about what we learned.
This week we will continue to reinforce place value. The children should know how to count by ones, by twos, by fives and by tens to 120. We will be talking about ones and tens place.
This week we are going to start with a new unit about Space Systems. If you have anything related about this topic, we would appreciate if you would let us borrow it from you. Thanks in advance.
