Our reading series is called Good Habits, Great Readers.  We will be continuing to work with leveled readers (just right for you books) for our independent reading and guided reading groups.  All the children  use a reading "pocket" to store their independent reading books and journals.  The pocket is a bag that hangs on each child's chair and keeps their book choices readily available.

We are working on the Solids and Liquids unit in science.  The children will learn that all things are made out of matter and matter takes up space,   We will start by studying liquids and then move onto solids.  Some of the vocabulary words in this unit are:  transparent, translucent, viscous, bubbly, opaque, solid, liquid and gas.  If you have anything you would like to share with us or community connections that you could share with us, we'd love to hear from you.
