Curricular Information:

Math:  We worked on more multiplication strategies as well as we looked at the multiplication table.  We also organized and graphed data.


Writing:  We enjoyed writing true narratives about our Christmas break.  We also began to learn cursive writing.  We will continue learning cursive throughout the remainder of the year.


Religion:  We read in our daily prayer book, as well as our devotional book.  We reflected on those readings.  We also offered up intentions for others.


Reading:  We continued our study of non-fiction features.  We did some work with words and learned about possessive nouns as well.
