Welcome to December! 

We introduced a new math unit that covers time. With time, students learn terms such as hour, half past, quarter to, and quarter past. In addition, students gain an understanding of telling time on an analog clock versus a digital clock. This skill remains highly important as they will encounter both outside the classroom. On our Geography shelf, we have introduced our unit on biomes. Our nomenclature reads: “A biome is a community of plants and animals that live in a large area with a particular climate and soil. Plants and animals that make up the biome have special adaptations that help them to thrive there”. This unit will go further into detail describing the climate zones that are important for making up the 8 different biomes represented in our unit. 

Please note, an invitation for Curriculum Night has gone home. Our students are excited to share their work with you, and we hope to see you there!
