Ruhnke Review 4/8/19

651-771-8494 ext.18 ~

We Are Learning About:

Reading: On to our next adventure in “The SuperKids Club” we move on to the letters “Pp”, “Vv” & “Ww”.

Math: We are now beginning Topic 14: Time. Please work with your child on these vocabulary terms-more time, less time, sequencing/order of the day, sequencing/order of events, knowing where the numbers are on a clock, telling time to the hour, and times of events. Please do NOT use a digital clock when working with your child on time. They need to be learning time on a clock with “hands.”

Religion: We will learn about Easter Sunday.

Humanities: This week we will learn about “The Ten Commandments”

Science: We will be studying Day & Night in this unit.

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!!

Weekly News

Reading Logs:

The March Reading Logs were due April 1st. If you haven’t done so, please send it back to school today.

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.

CONFERENCES: Conferences are fast approaching! If you have not already do so, please send back your yellow sign-up sheet indicating which day & time you prefer. Thank you. I look forward to seeing each of you to discuss your wonderful children!! I sent you a survey to fill in about your child a week ago. If you have not done so, Please return it to me by Monday. THANK YOU!

Junior Achievement:

Volunteer Help: Since I sent out the email asking if anyone would like to volunteer to do Junior Achievement in our class, we are blessed because I have already received a reply with a volunteer!! Ms. Amenya (Robyn’s Mom) has stepped up to do this. Thank you so much, Ms. Amenya!

Our school is fortunate to be able to offer Junior Achievement (JA) to our students at no cost. JA is a nonprofit that teaches K-12 students about entrepreneurship, money management, and prepares them to succeed in school and beyond. Students learn what it means to be a responsible worker, consumer and citizen through fun, hands-on activities delivered by a JA volunteer.
