Dear Parents,                                                               1-9-17

         Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a nice start to the year and enjoyed the break with your children.

We are about to begin a study of objects in the sky – the sun, moon, and stars.  We’ll start with the sun and learn about the predictable pattern it makes as it travels across the sky during the day and during different seasons. 

Then we will study the moon.  Since we aren’t in school at night, please help your child make night sky observations noticing the stars and how the moon changes from night to night and where it is in the sky.  I am sending a moon phase calendar home next week so your child can keep track of and draw the phases of the moon and how it changes each night.  We will also keep a moon calendar at school.  Please encourage and remind your child to look at the night sky on any clear nights this month.  This Thursday is the full moon!

         In math, topic 5 is focused on the understanding that the equal sign indicates that both sides of an equation represent the same value.  Students will decide if addition and subtraction equations are true or false and find the missing number in an equation.

         Thank you for your support with the “book in a bag” reading homework!
