Reading and Writing

This week the children worked on many special writing projects for Mother's Day and Grandparents Day! Happy Mother's day to each and every mother!


We began our Mo Willems author study this week. The children noticed how funny the stories can be. Next week we will learn more about this author and even create our very own Mo Willems book!


We also continued to review short vowels this week. The children practiced reading and writing cvc (consonant vowel consonant) words.

Math

We learned a game that helps us count money by 1s and 5s. The children also practiced locating missing numbers on the number chart. We used strategies such as counting by 1s, 5s, and 10s to locate the missing numbers.


Have a wonderful weekend! Kindly, Mrs. Masters
