May 1, 2017
I can't believe we are in the month of May. The year has gone by so quickly. We have already started practicing some songs for graduation. It will be here before you know it.
We will be going out each day, but the weather is still chilly and the playground can get very windy. Please make sure your child has a jacket each day!!!!!
Spelling Tests will be given each Friday; unless otherwise noted. Please be sure to study sight words with your child each night.
I also can not stress enough the importance of completing homework, handing it in on time and being neat. This will instill good homework habits that will carry your child through their school years.
Just a few reminders:
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. 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.
If there is a change in transportation, a note IS NEEDED!
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.

***** We are working hard on letter/sound recognition in the classroom. We are creating lists of words that have the letter sound in them. Please practice this skill at home with your child. The children must be familiar with all letters, as well as the sounds they make.
We will begin Chapter 12-Classify and Sort. Children will sort by size, shape and color. Please continue to practice counting objects and be practicing correct number formation. Try and have your child count real life objects at home.
We will learn about butterflies and ladybugs. The children are so excited to be watching our butterflies and ladybugs grow in our classroom.
We will be talking about Mary, Jesus' mother.
