Happy New Year to all!! We are excited to start the second half of the school year! We will start by reviewing rules and expectations in the classroom. Please remind your child the importance of following C.A.R.E.S. and the Allemands Essential 11. In reading knowledge, we will start our unit on Early American Civilizations and use nonfiction texts to ask and answer questions. We will also begin understanding text features and how to use them to answer questions about a non-fiction text. In math, we will start place value. Students will soon have an understanding that each digit in a 2 digit number represents the amount of tens and ones. Students will also begin using the symbols <, >, and = to compare numerals. We will have parent teacher conferences January 15 and 16. We look forward to seeing you there. Thanks for all of your support!
