What We're Learning

We are doing a unit on sequencing. How do you retell a story? What happened first, next, then last?

We will continue to provide support and activities in letter and sound recognition.

Rhyming- a lot of activities over the next few weeks will focus on rhyming which helps build reading and writing skills.

A great way to start communication with your child is to ask:

What is your favorite fairy tale?

Do you know what to do when you get to school? Is it being kind to say, "You can't be my friend?"

Can you count to 100 by 1's, 5's and 10's.

Math (Unit 14) measurement We will use different instruments to measure objects by weight, length and volume

Science- The Life Cycle of Animals

Social Studies- Why do we need maps?
