Religion

In Religion, we will learn about Epiphany. We will talk about the Magi and how they brought gifts to Jesus. We will hear the story of Jesus’ baptism and discuss how when we are baptized, we become part of God’s family, the Church. We will additionally discuss one of the miracles that Jesus has performed. We will talk about ways we can follow Jesus and share God’s love with others.

Reading/Language Arts

During the month of January, we will be reading two animal fantasy stories as well as 2 informational texts. The letters we will be focusing on are R, D, K, F, and short O. We will continue to learn about verbs. We will practice distinguishing between realism and fantasy. We will also be working on identifying the plot of a story. Please continue to practice the high frequency words at home with your child. Our new words for the month are: see, look, they, you, and of.

Words that we are currently focusing on in our reading and writing are:

a         am       have       I        is        in         it           like        little        my        to

at        an        the        we      he       for       me        with        she        look        see

they     you      of

Math

We will continue to work on addition strategies. We will then begin to explore subtraction. We will represent subtraction as taking apart. We will then learn how to represent subtraction with equations. We will learn different strategies to help us subtract fluently. Finally, we will be learning how addition and subtraction facts are related.

Reminders

Please be sure that your child has warm clothing for outside recess. We go out whenever possible.
