Room 4 ~ Grade 1December 4, 2023
Welcome to Room 4
Hello Room 4 families,
Wow, we can’t believe it is already December!! We have had a fantastic month in Room 4. In math, the students are developing skills in representing their thinking in multiple ways. The class is working on skip counting skills and efficiently counting objects. Thank you to our mathematicians for working so hard on Dreambox both at school.
In literacy, we have started our nonfiction reading and writing units. Students are choosing topics they are experts on and writing an information piece to teach their readers. We have started the Home Reading Program, please take the time to read with your child and asking questions before, during and after your child or you are finished reading the book. Asking comprehension questions helps students understand the meaning of the story, process the text and make personal connections with the story.
In Social Studies, we have narrowed down our Roots and Shoot's project and continuing to build our school pollinator garden. We've had great discussions about issues that we see in the world and how we can make impactful changes. We are also learning about diversity in our classroom and community for the month of December. With the holiday's coming up, room 4 will explore what traditions are and how families celebrate during this special time of year.
A reminder, as the outside temperatures start to drop, please make sure your child is coming to school with a hat, snow pants, mittens and a scarf. It is important for your child be on time and attend school everyday to ensure they are receiving the academic instruction they need to be successful at school. Thank you for your continued support in your child’s education. I hope everyone has a safe, relaxing and fun winter break. Take some time to unwind and spend time with your loved ones. I will see everyone in January 2024. Happy New Years.
