Weekly News: April 28-May 2


We are very excited to introduce our new class pets for the next few weeks: caterpillars! We will have the opportunity to watch their metamorphosis as they change from caterpillar, to chrysalis, to butterfly!

Save The Date: We will be having a Mother's Day celebration on Friday, May 9 from 11:00-12:30. More information to come. I wanted to let you know early case you need to take the time off work or find childcare for little ones. This is SUCH a special celebration and we hope all of you mommies are able to make it!

Only a few more weeks until your Community Service Presentations! Presentations will be due the week of May 12-16. Presentations in the past have included: posterboards, journals, slideshows, books, and pictures documenting your 6-8 hours of community service. Please visit our Community Service tab on the side if you have any questions.

What Are We Learning This Week?:
Sight Words: MOTHER, FATHER, SISTER, BROTHER, FAMILY.

Letter Team: There are NO new letter teams! For the rest of the year, we will be reviewing all letter teams that we have learned this year. The expectation is that students recognize the letter team within our three second rule, then be able to apply that letter team when decoding an unknown word. 

Reading:
 
We will read books about caterpillars and butterflies, as well as our poem of the week, "Pretty Butterfly".

Writing: We will have a very special writing project that we are working on this week in class. 

Math: We will continue our new math unit focusing on addition and subtraction. We are really focusing the next few weeks on Ways to Make Ten and Fluency through 5. 

Leadership: Our leadership theme for the rest of the year is SERVICE. I am excited to see how our kindergarten friends have shown service through their community service projects!
