What We Are Learning

This week we are still working in unit 9 Similarities & Differences and Plants.

Our Main Goals this week:

Language: Children will be able to identify the letter J and things that begin with the letter J. Please continue to review all the letters at home. We will be playing the game Make It, Break It. In this game we will say a word like "fox" then we will break it a part. We will say the first sound and leave the rest of the word in tact- /f/-ox. We are verbally teaching blending of words. This becomes a skill as we head toward reading.

Math: Your child will be able to rote count to 30 (4 year olds) and rote count to 10 (3 year olds) and start simple math equations where we are composing and decomposing the number 5. We are playing a lot of math games during centers. We are also continuing to review all our shapes and colors.

Social Studies: Your child will be learning the importance of farmers. What they do to help the community and how their products impact our lives. Right now is a great time to explore a local farmers market on the weekends. Dallas has a really good farmers market downtown if you would like a weekend trip. This will lead us into our next unit which is animals- we will then look at farm animals and their importance to our community and the products they provide.

Science: We are becoming excellent gardeners. This week we will focus on insects and their part in a garden. We have good bugs for the garden and bad bugs in the garden. We will be studying the lifecycles of different insects.

Planning Ahead for School Year 2016-2017


Please send a current utility bill before May 9th, 2015 to your child's CURRENT teacher. Your child will automatically be registered for Kindergarten or Pre-K accordingly and their records will be sent to the school they will be attending. Must be an April or May utility bill.

Regular Reminders

1/2 Day Classes -Library Day- MONDAY

Please remember to send your child's library book back so that they can check out a new one. If your child has lost or damaged a book they cannot check out a new one until you have paid for it. Mrs. Russell has recently sent home over due book forms.

Warm Weather Clothes

We are experiencing warmer weather-which is exciting. We are asking that your do not send your child to school in flip flops, sandals or open toed shoes. They need to be able to run and play on the playground. The best shoes are tennis shoes or cross trainers. We would also like you to check your child's backpack to make sure their extra clothes are warm weather appropriate. Please make sure to send your child's back pack daily. We are noticing some students are not bringing their backpacks.
