Wow! I can't believe the school year is just about over.......

Literacy:
 We are currently finishing the last two Jack and Annie book about Ancient Rome and China.  We have transitioned nicely into working in 8 centers a week and are working towards getting ready for 1st grade!

Math:
We have completed the entire GoMath program. We are currently reviewing addition and subtraction, skip counting, telling time, and identifying money.

Social Studies: 
We will  continue to learn about our community and New Jersey.  Throughout this year we have learned about the west, Africa, the pilgrims and native Americans, medieval times, pirate life, the Amazon Rain forest, Japan,  the ice age, ancient Egypt, the ocean, the Arctic, and space.

Science:
We have learned so much since school began; to finish the year we will learn about the life cycles of a butterfly and plants.
