 Happy Monday. I hope everyone had a great weekend. PLEASE PRACTICE GRADUATION LINES WITH YOUR CHILD. Don't be surprised if you hear your child singing the songs at home. Please be sure your child comes to school with a jacket every day. We will be going out each day.

Just a few reminders:
Changes in transportation MUST be in writing.
Your child will be coming home with a folder each day. Please be sure to go through the folder and take out any notices that may be in there.
Please be sure to send in one HEALTHY snack for your child. Please also send in a drink with their lunch and a spoon, if needed. Please try to refrain from sending in peanut butter with your child.
The children have started to practice writing their name (the first letter of their name should only be capitalized). Please give them practice at home with this, as well.
Each week our class page will be updated. This will give you information about what we will be learning in class, important events, due dates, field trips, etc. The sidebar on the left will be updated with useful links to websites for you and your child, as well as our calendar. At the bottom of the web page, you will find our special schedule.

When writing, please only use pencil......unless otherwise noted.
Practice letters and their sounds.


Letters of the week: we will continue to practice all capital and lowercase formations
Trick words of the week: they
Poem of the Week: Ladybug
We will start to learn words that have digraphs: ch, sh, wh, th
We have started CVC words and tapping words out. Please have your child practice this at home. We are also working on long vowel sounds and silent "e."
The children must be familiar with all letters, as well as the sounds they make.
We are also learning about rhyming words. We have learned that rhyming words must end the same.

We have completed all the units in our GoMath book. We will spend these last few weeks reviewing all the skills we learned this year.

We will begin butterflies. We will begin growing butterflies and ladybugs. This is such an exciting time in our classroom.

We will spend the month of May talking about Mary, Jesus' mother.
If you have any questions, concerns or comments throughout the year, please feel free to contact me.
