Field Trip News: Our field trip is on Wednesday, May 17, 2017. Students and chaperones will need to be at school at 8:00 a.m on the day of our zoo field trip. DO NOT RIDE THE SCHOOL BUS TO SCHOOL, AS IT WILL NOT ARRIVE IN TIME! We are promptly leaving at 8:15 a.m. If your child attends SACC in the morning and arrives prior to 8:00 am, we will be able to pick them up at SACC to attend the field trip. We will return to school around 2:30 in the afternoon. Students will be able to go home by their regular way. We will send out more details and reminders closer to the date.
Writing: We are continuing to work on illustrations and learning how our pictures can help tell a story. We will discuss how using our decoding skills to write the sounds we hear will help the reader more easily read our writing.
An area of focus is to work on letter formation, letter sounds and writing the beginning sounds of a word. We practice writing and handwriting daily.
Reading: This week we will be reading and exploring Mo Willems books and his craft of writing. We continue to work on building reading skills such as rhyming, sight word, and stretching out sounds during reading groups and language art centers. Please continue to review letters, letter sounds, and sight words at home too. Please try and read 15 minutes daily with your child.
Math: In math, we have been learning about fractions of a set. We will soon begin a unit on number sense building numbers.
Science: In science we are studying and learning about Earth Day. We are discussing how to help the Earth by reusing things, recycling, and reducing or conserving.
