Travel is our focus for the coming weeks beginning with the Seven Wonders of the World. We will be planning and answering questions like :What are the benefits of traveling. Where do we want to go? What important things we need while traveling. How are we going there? Why do we want to go there? The big idea will expand through discussions, stories and sharing experiences. Transportation, different cultures and traditions will also be discussed. International week will be on the 21st of January and our class will represent Hawaii.


We will continue using numerous strategies to develop phonemic awareness. We will also continue number formation and number values. Students will continue to draw stories and label them with beginning sounds.

Show and tell time! Our wonderful sharers showed their favorite things to the class with joy and confidence!



Independent Learner's day was a big hit as everyone in our class were dressed up!

We have been learning about shapes. We cut, built, drew and painted a house out of them. We also talked about the parts of the house and why it is important for us to live in a house with our family.
