Inauguration Day

Hi Readers and welcome to the new era that is upon us all.  Like it or not we officially have a new President!  His "stand-in" was in the library during Inauguration Day and we were able to take a picture with him.  We also took time out to honor the significance of this day in the timeline of American history.  There is no projecting what will happen over the next four years but we (the world) will be watching it unfold.  

Within the midst of this new age, Room 108 is smack dab in the middle of Unit 5.  We are studying the moon and our solar system, practicing and finding long vowels in everything we read, and comparing all kinds of numbers as we learn about place value.  Not to mention we are still discovering where we are in our community and finding our place in our country and world.  It would be very understandable for your children to either feel lost throughout this very expansive exploration of place and time or else begin to ask all kinds of questions about what is surrounding us throughout the universe.  

Please check the right hand column in the blog for upcoming dates of importance and keep up the hard work with homework packets and home links.  Some children are getting very excited about their work and continue to ask for more!!  Hopefully you can keep up!
