Week Of April 12th

Highlights from last week....

We hope you all had a wonderful weekend. One more week before vacation! Will will be assessing in both ELA and Math this week.


In ELA, we learned about our country's national symbols. We made the flag, bald eagles, the white house and Statue of Liberty headbands. Our letters of the week were y and z. Our sight words were what and this. Please continue to work with your child at home with their sight words.


In Math, we worked on composing and decomposing numbers.

A peek at our learning this week....


This week our class will be reading stories about the sky during daytime and nighttime. Children will identify the sun during the day and the moon at night.

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

Word Workout

  • Vocabulary: distance, recognize Take your child outside during the day and at night. Help your child identify the sun, moon, clouds, stars, sunrise, and sunset.
  • My Words to Know

High-Frequency Words: for, have, they, of, said, want, here, me, this, what Have your child think of a sentence using one of the words. Write the sentence, then read the sentence together.

Category Words: opposites Use gestures to act out words that are opposites, such as up/down, pull/push, open/close, and in/out.

Phonics: u, g, w, x, v, j, qu, z Search for objects with these letters. Play “I Spy,” and have your child guess the names of objects. For example, I spy something we use outside when it rains. It begins with u. (umbrella)


In Math, we will continue using number bonds to decompose and compose numbers.


In Science, we will be learning about the wetlands.

Half Day on Wednesday

We will have a half day of school on Wednesday. Please note that work is sent home with your child in their folder on that day. Please have your child complete the work and send it back the next day. Thank you!

Supplies

Many families have been reaching out to ask what we need for our classes. Our classes are running low on Clorox wipes, dry erase markers and glue sticks. If you would like to donate any of these items to your child's class, we would really appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
