Well it wasn’t the best week we’ve ever had but everyone made it through it and I am excited about the end of the year testing results I have so far!! I will be out again on Wednesday to finish up end of the year testing and hopefully that will be it!!! 

We had an over whelming number of parents volunteers (THANK YOU) so I had to draw names out of a hat for our chaperones.  If you have not been notified I am sorry but your name wasn’t picked.  I am happy to announce that everyone has turned in their permission forms and bought their ASB cards!!!

-What we’ve been learning- 

We finished our Author study this week!! The kids did an amazing job find the key details of the books comparing and contrasting the books, and finding connections with the books.   

Letters: Aa, Ee Ii, Oo, Uu long sounds

Words: Where & Come

Writing:  We’ve taken a little break from our journals for our plant study and author study so we will be going back to our journals and really focusing again on our letter formation and extending our thoughts.  Our goal will be to fill the page with our writing adding more detail to our writing.     

Math:  Money!  We are going to take a little peak into money learning how much each coin is worth and counting it up (mostly just the pennies, nickels, and dimes). 


-What we will be working on-

We are going to be taking a look at different helpers/occupations for the next couple weeks.  We are going to start with some community members they see a lot like teachers, police officers, doctors, firefighters, etc. 

Letters: Review of all the letters and sounds

Words: Where & Come

Writing:  We are back to our journals! We’ll be focused on using the whole space filled with our ideas.        

Math:  We are going to continue learning about money.  The kids have done amazing with it so far but it is a fairly hard concept so we’re going to take another week to really get to know our 4 main coins (pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters) and do our best to work on being able to count them up. 


-Things to work on at home-

Read, read, read!

Counting to 100-By 1s, 5s, & 10s. 

Our sight Words (knowing them instantly and writing them), we’re at 40!!
