We had a great week of learning and fun! We love our parents and are very grateful for all the support and help you give us. We have another week packed full of new ideas to explore and things to learn. We will be finishing up assessments for report cards. Children should be able to tell me their address, city, county, state, country, and continent. Keep practicing with your child. Read below for a sneak preview of some of the things we will work on this week.
Reading: We will be using the book Happy Hat to discover different ways to problems solve as we read. We will answer questions we may have about unfamiliar words and what to do to make sure we comprehend as we are reading. Retelling is very important. Students will work on strategies to retell stories they have read. We will also be reading Saint Patrick's Day books.
Math: We will be working with Shapes. We will be combining basic shapes to make more complex and different shapes. Students will also compose and decompose shapes of ther own.
Phonics: Our Letter Of The Week: Nn. We will be working with the word families -in and -un. The children will be working on blending sounds to make different words within these families.
Sight Words Of The Week: up by. We will detect these words in our surroundings and everyday reading. They pop up everywhere!
Social Studies: We will finish up our study on our National Symbols.
Writing: The children will be writing about personal experiences, responding to literature, and creating new stories. They continue to work on using their writing resources and correct writing conventions.
We sent home a note about our "Mother Goose Party Musical". We will be performing the muscial on Friday, April 1st. In the letter you should have received information about your child's costume. If you have any questions let us know. The children are having fun learning the songs and the movements. We are looking forward to a fun performance.
We need some items for our treasure box. If you have any extra items we can add, please send them in with your child. Thanks for your help!
