Welcome Back!

We have been busy continuing with our spring theme and will talk about Memorial Day this week.  We talked about our five senses and experimented with our senses of smell and hearing.  The children will be introduced to water snails in our classroom this week during our science time. We will observe them and talk about the parts of a snail.

In Math, the class has started topic 13 which continues to focus on shapes. We will be comparing shapes and seeing what shapes can be made from other shapes. The children are using iPads, practicing subtraction, and tracing shapes with a particular number of sides during our centers this week.

Your child continues to read independently, in a partnership and in a small group at his/her independent reading levels. Our centers this week will consist of reading with me and two rhyming centers.  We will be spending some time with our Reading Buddies this week and next week, planting seeds and flowers. Molly will also continue to listen to the students read every other week.

We are writing narratives in class. Your child will focus on writing a story with a beginning, middle and end across booklet pages while also adding illustrations. We have talked about making the book an easy read. If the reader gets stuck, some editing may need to take place.

Have a great week!
