Merry Christmas! The Stars are working hard and learning lots! Get ready for another busy week :) We'll study features of literary works in order to emphasize the characteristics and elements specific to a variety of genres. What makes a story a folktale or fable? What is fiction and what is informational? We'll create, sort, and classify two- and three-dimensional figures, continue to investigate Earth materials and natural resources and learn about Christmas Around the World. Be sure to check our newsletter for upcoming dates. There are lots of opportunities for fun, fun, fun this month! Let's find ways to make our classroom, our school, and even our world a better place! :) I wish you good times............we're having lots!
