Hello Parents!!!

During this month, we will be celebrating our love of books and the birth of spring.  We will observe and talk about the changes that will take place soon with the arrival of spring towards the end of the month. J  This week is Read Across America Week!  During this week, we will discuss and foster the importance of reading. 

Literacy

READER’S WORKSHOP

Our readers are finishing our unit called Bigger Books, Bigger Reading Muscles, and soon we will begin the next unit called Avid Readers. In this unit we will practice reading more complex books, so our reading skills may advance.

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

 

WRITER’S WORKSHOP

Our writers are working on to the next unit called How-To Books. In this unit, the children will learn to write books that teach readers how to make / to do things (i.e. how to make a snowman).

 

FUNDATIONS

Our Fundations program focuses on the introduction/review of all letters, letter sounds, and practices phonics.

 

Math

We just finished up Chapter 8, which focused on numbers 20-100, and soon, we will start Chapter 9, which focuses on a study of 2-dimensional shapes. In this chapter we will expose our children to the features of various 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
