Themes for this Month
We are learning about the Winter Season. We are identifying article of clothing that we wear in the cold. We are learning about snow, water and ice. We have begun science experiments observing ice to help find similarities and differences between solids and liquids. We are traveling to the Arctic Habitat. We will identify Arctic animals including Penguins and Polar Bears. We will identify features of each animal and learn how they stay warm in the cold.
In Social Studies, we will learn about Transportation by Land, Water, and Air. Discussions will include ways to travel and what is our favorite way to travel. We will learn why the modes of transportation are important in our daily lives. We will connect Transportation to our Community. Community lessons will provide the students with an understanding of roles, rights, and responsibilities of community helpers. We will also make connections to our own communities and identify familiar places.
