Weather

         

We are in the middle of a new and exciting unit on WEATHER!!!  We have been working on a variety of literacy skills (comparing and contrasting/ asking and answering questions) through our study on this interesting topic.  We are also working on researching topics to use for an informational writing piece.  Ask your child what type of weather they are researching!

On Friday, we will have Chris Bailey, a local meterologist, here to talk with us.  I told the kids to try to catch him on the news before he comes Friday.  He is on WKYT channel 27!  Hope you get a chance to check it out!!!

Holidays Around the World

We are began our HOLIDAYS AROUND THE WORLD unit on Monday, December 3rd. All 10 Lower Primary homerooms will be participating in this special project. Each teacher has selected a country and will present the holiday traditions to each Lower Primary class. Your child has made a passport to use while traveling around the world.  At each stop, they will receive a stamp to represent their visit in that country and will be bringing home a research notebook from their journey.  Be sure to ask your child where he/she visited each day!  Hopefully, this unit of study will allow the children to understand how the holidays are celebrated in countries other than our own.  Happy Holidays!
