Happy New Year!
I hope that you all had a wonderful winter break full of family, fun and laughter.
This month we will be starting a new science unit, which focuses on different types of weather. As we look into the weather categories we will also be exploring clouds and how their formations can help you to predict the weather. I encourage you to peek out the window with your child and see if they can put their meteorologist hat on to tell you about the clouds they see and the weather they will bring.
All of the first grade students will begin learning about different cultures around the world in the months of January and February. This unit is a great way for our students to explore what makes our culture and other cultures unique. We will be “Cruising the Continents” from one classroom to another to learn about different countries. Our class will become “experts” on South Korea. If you have any artifacts or information that you would like to share with the class about South Korea please let me know and we would be happy to have you share with the class.
As an enrichment activity for our “Cruising the Continents Unit” we will be traveling to the Dover Children’s Museum. The children will have an opportunity to explore artifacts from around the world and learn about holidays that are celebrated in different cultures.

Friday, January 27 – Report Cards Sent Home
