Phonics: We will focus on the letters Yy and Zz. These are our last focus letters!! We will be doing letter review then beginning and ending sounds after that.
Writing: We continue to work on writing about one small moment in time. This helps us narrow our stories down to specific moments. Ask your child about a watermelon story compared to a seed story!
Math: We will continue to focus on the numbers 11-20.
Science/Social Studies: This week and next week we will focus on the Pilgrims. We will discuss why they left England, the items they brought with them to America, and the hardships they faced.
