This year we will use the concept of "families" as a part of our learning across our curriculum.
In social studies we will talk about "families and communities" as we come to
know our very special classroom community of learners.
In science we will study "animal families" as we take an in-depth look at animals all year long.
In spelling we will see how words fit together and learn new "word families" each week.
In math we will learn new "math fact families" each week as we discover patterns and relationships between numbers.
