January 2018 Newsletter

Mrs. Jones & Mrs. Bucci / Room 5

Hello Parents!!!

I hope everyone enjoyed their winter break with families and friends. I also hope that everyone is ready for all the changes that the New Year has brought upon us. J



Our five centers will advance to eight, in which various academic activities will take place. Also, instead of role-playing in our centers, we will be doing independent small group activities with our friends.



Our work will continue to intensify as the year moves on, and I know that our children will rise to the challenge. We are all showing improvement with our writings, and we will continue working hard every day.

We will continue reading our Magic Tree House books, learning about different times, animals and people. This month, we will learn about ninjas in Night of the Ninjas.



We will continue reviewing the math skills previously taught: numbers & number sense, sorting and classifying, skip counting, and addition. We will also be learning subtraction.


Things to Note & Remember:

  • Our children should be able to write their own answers from the homework planner.A letter will be going home explaining this modification.


  • Library is on Thursdays.Please remember to return your books on time.


  • Please check and empty your child’s folder DAILY.
