Thank you for coming to school for both our music concert and conferences this week. It was a pleasure to get to meet with all of you. As I get to know you better I know your child that much better too!
The energy running through grade 1 is high right now, and I can feel the excitement for New Years already building. I’m looking forward to China Day tomorrow (12:00 to 3:00).
Next week the children will attend a PSA sponsored magic show on Feb. 6. Feb 9 will be busy as we will participate in a New Years parade (wear Chinese dress, 8:30) and also celebrate our 100th day of school.
We will begin new units of study in both reading and writing workshop. In writing, we will explore writing songs and poetry. In reading we will focus on ‘being the boss’ of our reading fluency and comprehension.
In math, we are creating 100’s charts and playing Missing Numbers games. Our study of sound will continue with an emphasis on pitch and volume.
I hope you have a lovely weekend.
