 CSW is quickly approaching. Please send in a family picture if you have not done so.
_______________________________________________

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.

Reading:  

Letters of the week: capital letters A-H
Sight word of the week: up, get, some
*** We will begin poetry this week. The children are very excited about reading a new poem each week and doing various activities to go with it. All the poems will go into their poetry notebook which will go home with them in June.
We have started CVC words and tapping words out. Please have your child practice this at home.
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 will be reading Winter stories and completing activities to go along with them.
 

Math:
 
We will begin Chapter 7- Numbers 11-19. We will revisit ten frames. Remember a ten frame has ten when it is full. The children should now be mindful when writing numbers that they should all be touching the sky and grass lines.


SS/Science:
We will be learning about winter and matter. The children will be doing a number of fun "snow" experiments. Last week, we did a hot chocolate experiment. There are more fun activities planned this weekend with "snow."


Religion
We will be talking about how how each one of us in unique. We will actually be tying this into literature with the story, Snowflake Bentley. Just as no two snowflakes are unique and special.....so are we (Religion, Science and SS all tied into one)
 
If you have any questions, concerns or comments throughout the year, please feel free to contact me.

Love,
