Nuts and Bolts
This week we worked on looking at the first two letters of a word to see if it was a blend. We hunted for blends in our books and shared what we found with our reading partner. Next week we will be reading through a word to make sure we are also paying attention to the ending of a word.
Students continue to share their How-To books. We kicked off our All About unit. Together we created a class book "All About Bald Eagles." Students made a list of topics they are experts at, these will become topics of their All About Books. We also are working on a class goal. "I can use a capital letter at the beginning of a sentence." We are working on using upper and lowercase letters appropriately in writing.
This week we worked on using attributes to describe shapes. Students are working with pattern blocks to make pictures and we continue our work on number combinations to 10. We are wrapping up unit 5 and will be starting unit 6 next week. Feel free to work up to page 136 in your Home Connections book. A new home connections book will be coming home next week.
- Those students/parents will then get a code that will allow them to sign up either online (fallsrec.org) or in person at the REC dept. office. Registration will not open until April 9th, so there is still time to do the above.

Music Update From Mrs. J:
5K- Kindergartners are loving their energetic music times. March has been an exciting month filled with lots of singing, dancing, and moving! Some of our favorite activities this month have been “A-Me Limbo”, “Burnie Bee”, and “Dinosaurs”. We are having fun learning about steady beat and movement exploration each day in our music experience!

Help Support the Maziasz Family
Many of you know the Maziasz family. Their oldest son Carter is in our class and attended 4K in Kelly Skalla's class. In November, Carter's younger brother Lincoln was diagnosed with Leukemia. Many of you have asked about the family, how they are doing and how you can help. I wanted to pass along a fundraising website friends of the family have recently created. Thanks so much for your consideration!
