Habitat Book Report:  We have been very busy working on our habitat project and the children enjoy learning from each other.  All dioramas & Boom Report flip books need should be completed by Jan. 23rd.  We are also working on a large mural depicting our habitats.

We have been practicing the 'Act of Contrition' and preparing for our Sacrament of Reconciliation which will take place this Tuesday, Jan. 15th in the afternoon.  All parents & family members are invited.. Hope to see you there!

Math: We are learning how to regroup when adding two digit addends,  On strategy is using the 'break apart strategy'. Another strategy is to rewrite the 2-digit numbers in 'tens' & 'ones'. Other Strategies will be taught and used to help us easily add two digit addends.

Social Studies: We are on Studies Weekly #13 which covers more map skills.  We will look more into reading World maps and locating different habitats throughout the world. 

Have a great week!!
