Who were the 46 presidents of the United States?  This is the History Unit the students are working on in our classroom.  They are creating timelines, learning facts, researching individual presidents, and more.  With President’s Day coming up next month, this has been a popular choice from the culture shelf.
In language, we’ve introduced a new unit on antonyms.  At the initial lesson we used concrete examples to show the opposite meanings.  In the coming weeks, students will also learn about synonyms and homonyms.
Brrr!  The cold weather is here.  Please remember to send warm outdoor gear to school everyday with your children, including items such as coats, hats, gloves, snow pants, and snow boots.  We have the option of going outside anytime the temperature is above 15 degrees.  Teachers will exercise discretion regarding severe wind chill and other weather factors.
Stay safe and warm.  Peace.
