FIELD DAY IS COMING - JUST A REMINDER
Indian Creek Elementary PK Field Day
Friday, May 20th, 2016
We will have some water activities and relay games so please send your child in appropriate clothing ( tennis shoes, shorts, yellow tie-dye t-shirt, hat). We highly encourage sending your child with an extra pair of dry clothes (especially socks and shoes) in case the clothes they wear outside get too wet. We also suggest bringing a water bottle (labeled with their name on it) that they can carry around with them, and a plastic bag for wet clothes. There are no water fountains outside. If you want your child to wear sunscreen, it MUST be applied at home BEFORE coming to to school.
If you plan on joining us for field day, please make sure you check in with the office.
The schedule for this year’s Field Day is as follows:
8:30-10:30 PK whole day/PPCD AM and PK AM

WHAT WE ARE LEARNING
Language: Children will be able to identify all the letters of the alphabet. We should be able to name all the vowel letters-a,e,i,o,u. Please continue to review all the letters at home. We will be playing the game Make It, Break It. In this game, we will say a word like "fox" then we will break it apart. We will say the first sound and leave the rest of the word in tact- /f/-ox. We are verbally teaching blending of words and we will review rhyming and segmenting words. We will also start on taking away the first sound of a word. Example- say the word fox now say it with out the /f/ sound. The answer would be ox. We should also be able to say simple rhyming words like boat/ goat, shell/ bell and know what a rhyme is. This becomes a skill as we head toward reading. We will also be working with short constant, vowel , constant words like BUS, CAR, VAN, and FIX.
Show and tell this week will take place on Thursday. Please send your child in Hawaiian outfit items.
Math: Your child will be able to rote count to 30 (4 year olds) and rote count to 10 (3 year olds). We will be starting measurement and measure each child's height. We will be working with words-tall,taller, tallest, short, shorter, shortest. We are also continuing to review all our shapes and colors.
Social Studies: Your child will be learning about different modes of jobs found by the seas and oceans. We need to know how important our oceans are and how they effect people.
Science:Your children will be learning about different beach and ocean animals . We will talk about the different classes of animals- fish, animals with shell, sharks and ocean mammals such as whales and dolphins.
