This Week:

Literacy : We learned about the letters Yy and Qq. Please review their sounds with your child. Please enjoy the booklet about Earth Day with your child. We are learning about the words "where" and "come". We have now learned the letters Aa, Bb, Cc, Dd, Ee, Ff, Gg, Hh, Ii, Jj, Kk, Ll, Mm, Nn, Oo, Pp, Qq, Rr, Ss, Tt, Uu, Vv, Ww, Yy, Zz digraphs sh, th.

Math: We are continuing with our number sense, fluency lessons and began addition. We measured a friend using popsicle sticks. We are continuing to create our tile book for the numbers 6 through 10 including addition sentences. The students also took inventory of different items in the classroom. We rolled two dice, added the numbers together, and practiced writing our numbers from 0 through 10.

Unit: Our unit this week was taking care of the earth. We discussed how we can reduce (use less--turn off lights, turn off water while brushing our teeth, etc.), reuse (find new uses for items--a jar could become a pencil holder or vase), and recycle (take items to recycling plants to be made into something new).
