We discussed how Jesus rose from the dead on Easter and the children were so excited for this! We made lots of butterflies to symbolize new life! Its so fun watching them learn about this and experience their true love for Jesus!

This coming week we will be doing the following: 

Reading: Essential Question: What do good citizens do? New letter: Long I New Words: review week

 We will continue working on letter recognition, letter sounds and blending three to four letters together to make new words. The children are getting so good at this and really proud of themselves! Please continue practicing with them. Keep it fun, point out words all around you in their world at home or out in their environments! If they haven’t already, I’m sure they will start pointing out words to you that they see around them! This is such an amazing transition for parents to witness. Enjoy it! A safe environment for them to feel that its ok to fail, as long as they try their best, is the key to fostering a love of learning. Please continue to practice their sight words with them. I know it gets tedious, but you can find fun ways to introduce the words to them. Put them on post its around your home and have them go look for them on a word hunt. Another idea is to write the words out in bath soap when taking a tubby! The ideas are endless! Just make sure to keep it fun and stress free for them! 

Writing: We are writing everyday! They are understanding the concept and constantly improving their writing skills! Please reinforce with them to write how they would talk, use punctuation marks and begin each sentence with an upper case letter. Also remind them to match what they write with what they draw. Its so fun reading their writing!

Math: We will continue to work on the concept of weight, heavier or lighter, measuring with blocks, capacity, what holds more or less, temperature 

Religion: Chapter 22, Celebrating is Good. We will also learn about St Julie and St Ignatius of Loyola 

Centers: 1. Writing 2. Spring Magnets 3.Measuree spring pbjects 4.Art 5. ABC soup 6. Listening 7.God is Love craft 

Thank you so much for choosing St Jane’s. I am truly blessed to share my school days with your child! Please never hesitate to reach out to me about anything. 🙂
