Weekly Study Skills - 5.2

Hello first grade families!  In math we are learning to tell time!  It's a short unit, so we will be having the test this week.  Then we will move on to our next unit - 2D and 3D shapes. Students have begun researching an animal for a special writing project.  This week we will also spend time studying our Washington, D.C. bald eagles and eaglets a little bit more.  It should be a fun week!
