Monday, January 4 will be a teacher workday and students will return on Tuesday. In this nine weeks we have a little bit of catching up to do in science and social studies. We will need to study the 13 colonies before moving into the American Revolution and learning all about how the United States was formed. Science brings a quick review of light (that we did in the science lab before we left for the break) and we will study sound. Afterwards we will delve into space and learn about the solar system including the moon, stars, and the planets (bye Pluto). This will definitely be a very busy nine weeks!
