This week has been a busy one for sure! Though winter break begins next week, the students were still introduced to a couple new units. This allowed for the children to not only be excited for the holidays, but also continue their excitement towards learning new things. For math unit, students made the transition from gaining knowledge about time to now learning about money. Within this unit, students work on coin recognition and the skill of counting money. In addition, older students practice solving money story problems.

Aside from money, the students have been presented with a new geography unit. This unit pertains to biomes. With the biome unit students will discover the different climate zones along with the many types of biomes. These biomes including, desert, temperate forest, tropical rain forest, ocean, tundra, grassland, and so on. This unit is a popular one for most children at the lower elementary level and provides them with the opportunity to explore the world around them even more!

We wish you all a blessed and joyful winter break! See you again in 2022!
