Dear Parents and Pre-K students,

Happy Friday and Happy Walk-a-Thon Day!  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend; FINALLY some beautiful weather predicted!! 

Here are the plans for the coming week.  Our theme will be "Insects," and our word of the week will be "entomology."  We will be working on the letter "Xx."

Homework and copying sentences from the Smart Board will continue from this time forward.
All homework will be handed out every Monday and is due back on Friday.  Please encourage your child to take their time with the work and color carefully and neatly.  Stickers will be awarded for all fully, colored completed homework:)

Big Idea:
Monday -
Insects have six legs.
Tuesday - Bees are very helpful insects.
Wednesday -
Ladybugs are pretty!
Thursday -
Are dragonflies little dragons?
Friday -
Termites eat wood.

Monday - Edie's Backyard Bugs
Tuesday - re-read Monday's story, with a focus on ladybugs
Wednesday - Caching Fireflies - a listening story

Phonemic Awareness:

We will continue to work on beginning, middle and end sounds.  We will generate rhymes for: insect, bee, ladybug, dragonfly and termite.


Literacy:
We will explore, discuss and learn about insects, using the Smart Board and whatever knowledge the children already have of these creatures.  We will also try to gather some live insects and watch their actions.
