Hello Parents!!!

During this month, we will be observing the changes in nature and discussing the importance of Earth Day.

 

Literacy

READER’S WORKSHOP

Our readers are currently in the unit called Avid Readers. In this unit we will focus on the characteristics of an “avid reader.”

We will continue our practice on comprehension, letter/sound identification, and sight word recognition.

 

WRITER’S WORKSHOP

Our writers are currently in the unit called Persuasive Writings of All Kinds. In this unit, the children will learn to write “convincing” letters, songs, and petitions, in an effort to make the world a better place.

 

FUNDATIONS

Our children are focusing on blending sounds together to read words, as well as segmenting (breaking apart) words to hear each sound. This will aid our reading and writing.

 

Math

We just finished up Chapter 9, which focused on 2-d shapes, and we are now starting Chapter 10, which focuses on 3-d shapes.

Please remember to use thinkcentral, our online math resource!

Homework

Homework is given Monday-Thursday.

Please encourage our children to take pride in their work, and celebrate when they have completed their tasks. J
