During the next couple weeks, we are going to be learning about why we celebrate Labor Day. Labor day is celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a day to celebrate American workers and how they have helped our country. We will also learn about which jobs are important in our community and why people need to work.
Discuss the job you have and how your job helps our community. While you have the long weekend, you can point out some of the many places to work around our city and what they do for us.
Science/Social Studies will be covered in 3-4 week units. We will begin with Social Studies focusing on how we fit in the world, and why rules are important to follow. Students will be able to:
* notice the difference between land and water features on a map
* explain that a map is a drawing of a place
* explain that maps show features on a smaller size
* state their street address, city, zip code, and country where they live
* explain how and why rules are made
* explain why rules should be followed
