Thanks to all for making Hawk Walk 2018 a huge success!!! We had 100% class participation and had such a GREAT DAY together. Thank you to the moms who took time out of their busy day to spend it with us!! I am blessed with supportive parents and AWESOME kids!!!
1. Monday: Dress Down Day. We have gym, wear sneakers.
2. Wednesday: Library Books
3. Thursday: Trip to DeSales. Wear gym uniform.
4. Save the Date- Friday, May 11- Kindergarten Prayer Service, Parents and Grandparents are invited. More info to follow soon.
Here is what we worked on this week:
RELIGION: We learned that Jesus is the light of the world. We discussed the many ways we can spread the love of Jesus to others.
SECOND STEP: We talked about ways to make a polite interruption. Especially when two adults are talking and we need to get their attention.
MATH: We are learning the meaning of the terms: capacity, height, and length.
I will continue to check subtraction facts. It is very important to practice daily, our first grade teachers expect all children to have quick recall of addition and subtraction facts when they begin first grade.
LANGUAGE ARTS: At this time, your child is expected to know all the letters of the alphabet and their sounds. Your child should also be able to read the words I send weekly on the Remind App. These words are in addition to the words found on our word wall.
*Word Wall*- I, can, the, we, see, a, like, to, and, go, you, do, my, are, with, he, little, is, was, she, have, for, of, they, said, want, here, me, this, what, help, too, has, play, red, blue, orange, green, yellow, purple, brown, black, zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, triangle, circle, square, rectangle, oval.
It is important to make flash cards for all these words and practice them daily in a different order each time.
Continue to work on the reading website, Wonders, atleast 2-3 times a week. Be sure to check every week for new assignments.
It is important that you sit with your child and listen to him/her read the assigned books by themselves. Our books are going to become longer and more challenging in the coming weeks. Together, we are building the foundation for good readers.
Encourage your child to write at home. Be sure they are using a capital letter at the beginning, spaces between words, and an ending mark.
CENTERS: WRITING / IPADS / LISTENING / ABC WORK- letter stampers (ending sounds) / LONG i ART- kite / MATH- spring graphing / MONTHLY ART- Earth Day / WORD WORK
