We Are Learning About:

Reading: Our next adventure in “The SuperKids Club” we will continue to learn the letters “Nn” & “Mm".

Math: Math Facts-Help your child master the math facts by using the flash-cards I gave you back in September. Both the addition and subtraction cards are in the bag with the sight word flash-cards. We will continue with Topic 12: Larger Numbers. This includes numbers 11-20, patterns, Odd & Even, counting to 100, skip counting by 2’s, 5’s, 10’s. When we are done with Topic 12, we will go on to Topic 13: Money. Please work with your child. Give them several coins-pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. Then ask them what each of them are called and how much each are worth. After that give them a small item such as a pencil, a book, a piece of fruit, etc., and make up a small price for each item (7 cents, 12 cents, 9 cents, etc.). Ask them to give you the correct coins that total the amount of one item at a time. This will help them to become familiar with using money.

Religion: We will learn about Palm Sunday and Holy Week.

Humanities: This week we will continue to learn about Moses’ Birth, the Ten Plagues in Egypt, and the Exodus.

Science: We will continue the unit on Being Healthy..

Writing: For our Writer’s Workshop we are working on a three-sentence personal narrative paper. 1. The first sentence should tell the characters and the setting. The characters are the people or the animals. The setting is where & when. 2.The second sentence should tell the problem. 3. The third sentence should tell the resolution/how to fix the problem. Parents, will you please help your child with remembering these? THANK YOU!!

Spring has Sprung!! (Finally)!

Enjoy the wonderful sunshine & get outside this weekend!

Weekly News

Reading Logs:

February Reading Logs were due on March 1st. If you have not done so yet, please send them back to me!!

The March Reading Logs will be due on Monday, April 1st.

Sight Words:

The Sight words are MEMORY words, which means your child needs to memorize them, NOT stretch (or sound) them out. Many of the sight words do not follow the rules of phonetics, so don’t have your child stretch them out. Kindergarten will only learn the short vowel sounds. They will learn the long vowel sounds in first grade. They just need to memorize each word and it’s spelling. Use the flashcards I gave you last September.

Water Bottles & Drinks at School

This is a reminder that water bottles are welcome here at school and in the kindergarten classroom. The bottles are for water only. Students are allowed to drink water or milk at school, and juice that is only 100% juice with no sugars added. (The juice that is sold in the lunchroom has no sugars, and is 100% juice). NOTHING else may be brought to school. So, please don’t send pop/soda, other juices that are not 100% juice with no sugars added, flavored water, Kool-Aid, or anything else. The milk your child is offered here, at snack time, is free. Thank you!
