Curriculum News & Information
During our first week of discussing The Long Journey to Freedom, we have learned quite a bit about our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln. Students have enjoyed learning a bit more about his life and have just begun to take a look at the many struggles which we faced as a nation during the Civil War while taking a look at several books from the library. This next week we will continue with this topic a bit more as we look at Harriet Tubman’s role in the Underground Railroad which was an important part of the journey to freedom. Our writing/English lessons will cover a variety of writing skills including the topic of contractions and using adverbs to help enhance our writing.
In Math we will continue our work with telling time. This can be a challenging concept to master. Please take some extra time at home to practice this important skill that will be needed throughout their lives!
*If your child already has a box that they would like to use for the Valentine’s Day Party, you can send them on either Thursday or Friday of next week. If not, we plan on decorating some bags next week for the card exchange and party next Friday! Thank you!!!
