Week Of April 22nd

Highlights from last week....

We hope you all had a safe and restful vacation.

Before vacation we finished up our unit on how we get from here to there, my USA and what is up in the sky. The children did well on the assessment.


In Math, we finished our unit on adding and subtracting. The children rocked the assessment!

A peek at our learning this week....

This week our class will be reading stories about how children can help at home. Children will learn about taking responsibility for cleaning, caring for a pet, doing errands, and other chores.

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

Word Workout

  • Vocabulary: chores, contribute Discuss different ways your child can help out at home. Create a list of jobs on a chore chart.
  • My Words to Know

High-Frequency Words: help, too Write the words help and too, and ask your child to write each word. Think of sentences that use both words. Write the sentences down and read them aloud. Have your child underline the words help and too.

Category Words: Household Furniture Play a game of “Simon Says.” Use household furniture terms as you give commands to act out chores.

Phonics: long a Invite your child to play a rhyming game with words that have the long a sound. Guide your child in writing and sounding out the rhyming words.



In Math, we will begin our unit on teen numbers.

BOOK PUBLISHING

Payments are due by April 29th. We will be sending the books to the publisher on that day and we will need to know how many to order.

A Note from Mrs. Maillet

What a fantastic week! I cannot believe how much your children have grown in every academic area. It's just amazing!

Book orders are due on April 26th. Thank you for your continuous support. We were able to purchase some magnetic tiles for our classroom with our Scholastic Book Points that have been earned through your orders. The children LOVE building with them. Thank you! Please continue to read and practice sight words. I am really going to be pushing your children now until the end of the year. Many of our friends are approaching benchmark and I want them to meet/exceed benchmark before school gets out. Thank you for all that you do!


BIG shout out to Sabrina, Maddie, and Addison for donating some supplies to our classroom. Thank you SO much, we really appreciate it!

A Note from Mrs. Webb

It was nice to have the week off but I really miss your children and the excitement they bring to my day! I hope they enjoyed their week off and are ready to face our last 8 weeks of school! Our last day of school is scheduled to be Monday, June 17th. This is typically a half day of school. The end of the year gets busy. I promise to keep you updated on all dates and events as I am made aware of them.


Our class book "What I Want To Be When I Grow Up" is coming out great as we work hard to complete it! I will send in the book kit on April 29th for publishing. Order forms for these books will be sent home this week. Orders are due by Friday. These orders get sent in with the kit. Let me know if you have any questions.


The children have grown so much this year. Thank you for all of your support at home! Please continue to review sight words, reading, and number sense (counting, quantity, adding, subtracting). These skills are becoming more fluent for everyone! Great work!


Do you know anyone turning 5 before September 1st???? Please remind them of our kindergarten registration for 2019/2020.
