Welcome Back to School!

Dear Crew,
I hope that you have had an exciting winter break, have read lots of great books and are ready to come back to school on Tuesday. I know I am ready. I can't wait to see you. I have really missed you.

I have enjoyed the pictures you sent me of what you did over break. I have gathered them in a Google doc that I will print and add to our crew wall. Be sure to go see the photos of your friends and to send me any photos that you would like to add.

Winter Break Fun

Here are a few things that we have to look forward to after break:

Winter Voyage
We will be going on our Winter Voyage on February 22nd. It will be so much fun! Here are a couple of photos from last year.

Patriotic Symbols
In between our Expeditions, we will take a little time to learn about patriotic symbols of the United States and some famous Americans. We will learn so many fascinating facts. Here are a few of the resources we will use. More are coming!

We will be reading and writing nonfiction books. We will mainly be reading about animals but we will add some other topics in later. You are going to love the books I have picked out for us.

New Build and Create Station
We will add a water color option to the Build and Create Station.

All of this and so much more like learning more about addition, subtraction and geometry, going to the school-wide cup stacking tournament on Wednesday and reading lots and lots of great books! I can't wait to see you and get started on Tuesday!

Home Learning ~ Read a good book or two or try an online book. Check out a Bedtime Math story or play a math game.
