Classroom Happenings


This week our class will be focusing on ways in which we use our five senses to hear, taste, touch, see, and smell. Children will read about how they can explore the world around them by using their senses.

Here are some activities you can do with your child to help reinforce the skills we’ll be practicing.

Word Workout

  • Vocabulary: senses, explore Write terms for each of the five senses on index cards. Invite your child to explore your home by identifying things they see, hear, taste, touch, and smell. Record their findings on the cards.
  • My Words to Know

High-Frequency Word: see Write the word see on paper and have your child trace the word. Then play a game of “I See.”

Category Words: senses Ask questions about the senses. For example: What sense tells you that dinner is cooking? (smell)

Phonics: s Form an s with a piece of string. Then have your child form the letter. Look at a newspaper or magazine and ask your child to circle words that begin with the letter s. Make a list of those words and help your child read them.

Math Everyday

We have practiced numbers 1-9. This week we will get to know shapes, practice sorting and find out what happens when we add one more to a set. Please continue practicing counting by 1 to 50 and writing numbers 1-20.
