Beach Buddies' Bulletin

March 31-April 4th, 2014

Greetings from kindergarten! Sounds like you all had a great spring break. We enjoyed hearing about your adventures. We spent the week finishing up our Nancy Carlson author's study and diving into our Farm theme. We are researching pigs and learning many interesting facts!
In other literacy learning we have:

*used community writing to write facts about pigs

*shared the BIG ideas Nancy Carlson taught us in her books

*read and wrote the OT and OX family

*read about Mrs. Wishy Washy...a new character we'll explore more next week

In social studies we have studied community helpers and maps of towns. Next week we will try a science experiment with about color.
Next Thursday, April 10th we will take our monthly trip to the Care Center. We would love some extra hands in you are available! We will leave AES about 8:50 and return by 10:00.

Home Connections

Let me know if you would like additional star words in your child's Pack and Bring Back folder. We are moving onto many first grade words in the classroom. I can gladly add more words if you will use them to practice. Let me know!
