January is here! Please know that we will continue to go outside for recess daily, weather permitting, so warmer jackets, hats, and gloves will be needed. Our science unit "Earth's System: Processes that Shape the Earth" has begun! Students will explore the effects of weathering and the rate of erosion by water, ice, wind, or vegetation. This unit will tie in directly with our new reading topic, Weather and Climate, where the students will be sharpening their skills by reading nonfiction texts of all kinds. They will also begin writing a persuasive essay about something they are passionate about. Topic 7 in Math has the students using multiplication to find factor pairs, multiples of a given number, as well as, determining whether a whole number given is prime or composite.
Enjoy the beauty of Winter,
