 This school year we will be using Reader's and Writer's Workshop and Fundations.  Throughout our literacy journey will be focus on phonics, letter and sound identification and syllables. We will then incorporate these skills into our reading and writing.

Throughout the school year we will learn about our community, community helpers, history, places around the world, and all about New Jersey.
