Classroom Updates:

               Language Arts.........
        Poetry is the unit of study for January.  We will be reading, writing, and reciting poetry.  We will also be researching a poet and then writing a biography on that poet.  The unit culminates with poster presentations on poets of choice and a collection of student poetry samples.
Students should continue reading their PCR (Personal Choice Reading) books each evening as a regular daily homework assignment. Twenty minutes is the minimum required reading time.

               Social Studies..........
        Canada is a cool country!  We have explored the political and physical characteristics of this large country.  Next we are heading into the history and exploration of Canada.  Ask your child for some "trivia" on Canada; we are learning there is more to Canada than we thought!
