Good Afternoon!!

We will have our Easter Egg Hunt Thursday, April 18 at 10:30 am.  Please send in a dozen pre-packed plastic eggs and write your child’s name on each egg. Please let me know if you have any questions. J

Reading   We will continue Unit 10: The ABC Book.  We will focus on letters X, x. Y, y, Z, and z.  This unit focuses on rhyming words.  This is our last reading unit for the year!  We will be practicing writing our letters and name. We will clap out words to see how many syllables certain words have.

Math- We will continue practice writing our numbers. We will continue to learn the concept of more than and less than, and equal.  We will continue to learn the parts of the calendar (days of the week, months of the year, yesterday, today, and tomorrow).  We will be using manipulatives to count objects to 20.   We will continue with drawing shapes and recognizing how many sides each shape has. 

Religion– We will introduce Lesson 25: Holy Week.  We will learn Holy Thursday is The Last Supper and the first Mass; Good Friday is when Jesus dies on the Cross; Holy Saturday is was laid in the tomb; and Easter Sunday Jesus rose from the dead. I will be taking Pre-K for a walk to look at the outdoor Stations of the Cross that is on the other side of the church.  We will continue to practice the Hail Mary, Our Father, the Sign of the Cross, the Glory Be, Guardian Angel Prayer, and genuflecting.

Science- We will read “Hop, Hop, Hooray” in My Big World with Clifford. We will learn all about rabbits.
