Update from "LINKS" (P.S./I.S. 217 The Roosevelt Island School Newsletter)

2010 is off to a great start!  The students in K003 have been working on story elements and comprehension strategies in reading.  Writer's Workshop this past month focused on letter writing.  The students had so much fun writing friendly letters, persuasive letters and even letters to characters in a book.  In math, they have been studying Geometry.  Students can identify, sort and describe 2 and 3 dimensional shapes.  They even created their own 3 dimensional shapes using straws and connectors.  The next unit of study will be Measurement.  In social studies, the class continues to study holidays and traditions.  Earlier this past month they celebrated Three Kings Day.  They are looking forward to their Chinese New Year celebration this month.
